    Default Re: Eye-watering Crewsaver Liferaft Service Costs

    We nipped into Greece for a few weeks this June. The agent handling our paperwork specifically confirmed to me that I only needed in date life raft and flares if the boat was to be used commercially, ie on charter. Otherwise we could continue with the equipment on board and out of date. British registered yacht.
    (The life raft is now being serviced by Blues Yachting in Gocek, and we go to collect it next week. )

    Try getting an ACR Resqlink replacement battery in Spain. Tridente, Bilbao quoted me €350 . Force 4, amongst others, will deliver a brand new unit to Spain for less than €250.
    I'd rather be tethered to a pad eye than tethered to an iPad.

    The liferaft will officially still have to be declared as Dangerous goods to the channel ferry company that the van driver travels with, or he just blags it and hopes for the best. hmmmmm, dilema.

    I looked at the Crewsaver Liferaft offering at the Southampton Boat Show last year and quickly moved on. The quality was not great.
