Is it stolen? Please say no. An inspection for that would definitely be under $300.
I just got a call at home from an inspection station in Trinidad, saying he had my 6 man coastal liferaft
- I didn't even know it was missing. Two locals snuck it off my boat and out of a secure yard and offered it to a Frenchman for $100. He dragged them and the case to an inspection station and asked if it could be inspected. The inspector was no dummy. Even a 6 man coastal costs $2500+ to replace, so he said to leave it with him for the determination. Nobody came back, and he saw that they had attempted to scratch my boatname off the case, then taped up the mess they made. The paint
must have had toluene or something in it as it had gone way into the gelcoat
and glass. He found me by googling my boatname. Complimented us on our website too.
Lucky me. It needed inspection, and now it has been delivered.
