Re: when it comes to Liferafts can too big be a problem
Dave I agree, pick a raft that of course has enough room, and base this choice on how big you are, how many will be in the raft, etc.
In our Sea Survival course we had 8 people in a 8 man raft and it was a NASTY place to be.
I was more talking about those who are thinking, we're 2 people, we won't go for a 4, we'll go for a 6 just because I like the idea of a bit more space. I'm not sure I agree with that.
We will 90% of the time be 2 people on board, so we went with a 4. At the most we may have another person, which would be tight, but doable.
I wouldn't want 2 of us in a 6.
