It pays to get your life raft serviced!
After purchasing a pre-loved game boat, we discovered the life raft had not been serviced for 8 years.
For maximum safety we opted to purchase a new one as it was only slightly more expensive than having the old one serviced.
Out of interest we took the opportunity to inflate the old life raft to check out the survival at sea contents and discover why life raft services are so expensive.
In doing so the raft popped, one of the pontoons deflated and the sun/rain cover never inflated at all. Not so good!
While survival at sea is no laughing matter, we took a light-hearted look at the (8 year old) contents, so please have a laugh along with us in the video below.
