Well as Lifejacked has been beggared around with silly PFD

I have just been looking into 4 man Offshore
Liferafts for the boat I am after, and as a result voted 'maybe' in the poll
The Seago 4 man Offshore
does really well in tests and reviews
over here, and that's what I want, plus, a GOOD 3 year service on them can be had over here for about $150 equivalent.
In general, in studies of real uses of Liferafts, it does suggest that a new Liferaft that has NOT been serviced (even if it is out of date) is a far better bet than a serviced one.
A nice thing with Seago servicing is most agents will let you be there for its inflation and servicing, will give you instructions for its proper use, and you can keep an eye on things while it is repackaged.
I just posted a thread asking if I can get a Seago anywhere in USA. If not, I am very interested in something worthwhile enough at a reasonable price
(for a one man PFV) to have on the way back, and then get a new Seago when I am here.
As the Seago seem great value, and work far better than most of the expensive ones, would it perhaps be a better idea to look into importing and distributing them?
Though that may mess up me getting my hands on something to tide me over . . . . . Lol!
