Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

I have a Switlik 8-man fiberglass liferaft container that is in excellent condition for sale.

The outside measures 24" x 37" x 16".

If you want to pack more gear into your 4, 6 or 8-man liferaft this is what you would need to do it. Or if you want to re-pack your raft from a "depth charge" canister to a normal rectangle one.

This is just for the container - NO, raft, cradle or securing hardware.

It can be shipped or you can come and pick it up in New Bern, NC 28560. I can deliver it locally or down to Oriental or Morehead City = price being a cheeseburger meal for the delivery.

I'll try and add photos, but if that doesn't happen I can e-mail them to you. I have several pictures of it.

$100. A super cheap price for a canister in this good of condition.

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

Shipping details:

For those who can't come and get it, here are some more details for shipping.

The 2 halves weigh a combined 29-lbs (round up to 30 to be safe).

I think the simplest way to ship it is to "assemble" it and use a couple of pieces of Gorilla tape to hold it together.

Good deal, I bought a new Switlik container for our raft and it was about $800!

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - Make Offer!!!

OK, somebody must need / want this, so go ahead and make me an offer!

Don't be shy, I'm flexible on the price. It sitting in my garage taking up space isn't doing me any good....

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

Send me your ZIP code so I can get a shipping quote from FedEx.

And $75 is OK - hopefully shipping won't be insane.

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

The price on the container was lowered to $75.

Because of the size of the canister, FedEx home delivery is $92.00.

UPS is nearly the same on paper but it is a retail store, so will cost more.

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

I'd be interested, but that shipping cost. If the local UPS depot is too far, I believe you can call for pickup?

Or try USPS?

Doesn't need wrapping right, just a label, and maybe tape to ensure it stays closed?

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

Right, it does not need wrapping. I was just going to put the 2 halves together and us some Gorilla tape to keep the parts together.

The problem is the SIZE of the container not the weight.

My FedEx store is at the airport and belongs to FedEx - it is not a retail store.

I also have this listed on e-bay and I get a shipping discount with them. That might be the thing to do, and whatever the discount is I'll refund it to you.

It won't be a whole lot = maybe $10 or $15.. and I have reduced the price to $75.

I'll check with the Post Office and see what they say.

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

Post Office quote for shipping, no insurance, was $96.31.

Included in that is a $55.86 "oversized" fee.

Re: Switlik 8-man liferaft container - $100

Greyhound would require me to drive to another town to drop it off - which is a non-starter for me.

Greyhound would require you to go and get the package at their station by 11950.

Cost is $67.36.

USPS is $96.31

FedEx is $91.48

If you want to do it via FedEx, OK.

Otherwise, sorry it did not work out.

Let me know what you decide.

How much to ship USPS to 12975? I'd make a dock box out of it.
