Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Depth of life raft locker
Jamestoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
We have a Viking Ocean self righting Liferaft. Bought specifically for that attribute.
Our Santorin already had the liferaft mounted on the aft deck, jest behind the mizzen mast. I thought of moving it to the rail like the 54, but decided that if the worst happened then we would be awash in the cockpit in the best place to deploy it.
I didn’t consider the life raft locker. I didn’t fancy the juggle on the side deck to extricate it.
I can still store my dinghy over the liferaft (the transom slots in between the mast and the raft! But I do have to deflate the front tube to keep it out of the way of the mizzen mainsheet. It only goes there on long passages to keep the foredeck clear.
