Givens Life Raft Model 6AY-OS

Givens Life Buoy Life Raft Model 6AY-OS. Six person raft in fiberglass cannister with stainless steel cradle. Cradle measures 16 inches high by 23 inches wide by 34 inches long. New in 1991. Repacked/certified in 1997, 2003 and 2006. Thankfully never used. It's old, and it is possible that it may not pass certification again, but if you are buying a life raft here is an opportunity to buy a stainless steel cradle (new $450 up) and a fiberglass cannister (new $200 up) and the possibility of an excellent raft (new ($6925) for $500 plus shipping at cost. This is a large raft, quite heavy, so don't even think about putting it in a locker or lazerette.

Re: Givens Life Raft Model 6AY-OS

Hi, and thanks for the inquiry. Today we are in St. Augustine, FL, and will probably head to Jacksonville later this week. We will be in this area for another month to six weeks before heading north up the ICW.

I don't know how much the raft, cradle and cannister weighs, but it takes two people to pick it up. Have a look on e-bay as a new Givens raft is for sale there and they probably show the shipping weight.

I'd rather you picked it up, as I do not look forward to moving it. It is presently bolted to the deck and will take several hours to remove the interior ceiling to get at the bolts.
