Hi Mark,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As a suggestion only… I modified the port rail to accept a Hard cased life raft. Took the design from the Amel 54. This decision came after I tried to lift out the LR from its storage; I guarantee you cannot lift it out .. well perhaps Schwartzie could do it.
You have to rig a halyard to the main boom and you winch… a whole lot of faffing about as your boat disappears from under your feet.
In my case, I simply release the LR from its holder.
Just a thought.
