Liferaft would be a lot cheaper than that much cocaine.

It's the perfect raft. You can sell the raft at your destination to be able to pay for clothing, a ticket back home, and maybe even a new boat!

I guess the problem is, each one would cost you about 1 million dollars...

Re: Well, I am rethinking my life raft purchase

I met a guy who would never have a liferaft. "Expensive, will almost for sure never be needed, if needed probably won't work, if I need and don't have I won't regret it for very long." As I recall, he drown.
