Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Liferaft question
We also chose the Winslow Offshore for lightness, as we are able to lift it out with two hands. We keep it on the outside port locker, in a vertical position, raised about 2 inches off of the bottom via a little shelf, so that the raft handles' top are right at deck level.
Prior to getting this new raft in 2014, we had the hatch gaskets re-done, as water used to get in. So far, the locker remains dry.
