Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Depth of life raft locker
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Congratulations Mark on your new Amel. I can't tell you the depth of the locker as I am not on the boat, but it is close to 4 feet. I just bought a 6-man Switlik that weighs about 60 lbs and is a considerably smaller package than my old Datrex raft. I'm 70 years old now and don't think I'd have any problem yanking it out with adrenaline pumping. It is very close to the extra mizzen halyard if necessary.
I don't like having large equipment hanging outside the lifelines.
