Life Raft

One of the new items for the race.  This is a Revere Elite Offshore 4 man raft.  It is considered one of the lightweight rafts that can be stowed below.  It is still about 54 pounds and seems even heavier than that. One needs to lug it on deck, tie it off, heave it overboard and pull the string.  Then you hope it inflates and does not blow away.


If all goes well, it is supposed to look like the picture above.  Some people think that the little platform outside is for the family dog.  It is actually to help you get in, since the two yellow tubes are a couple of feet high and it can be a struggle.
