Color matching is not difficult if you have patience. The texturing might be best accomplished by someone being paid $75//hr.
I agree with removing the life raft personally - For reasons mentioned.
I prefer to keep my life raft in the cockpit port lazarette. This is the most protected place to remove it, though requires a bit of strength for raising it out which is the main drawback... but for my wife or myself, it is not an issue. Having it out on the life rail or deck leaves it exposed to tons of water washing over your boat, and exposes crew to the greater risk of being swept off. Also, I imagine the lifespan of the life raft is likely to be longer in a place protected from the elements.
I think having the deck as clear as possible improves overall safety and security.
