Depending on weather
, I think I’d take the dinghy
and keep the liferaft
in it’s valise, case etc.
My reasoning is I have many hours of fuel
that can take me along at speeds up to 20 kts or so sea conditions permitting of course, but if I see another boat
or ship, I could make my way to them, or if I grabbed the 5 gl dinghy fuel
can off the deck
, I may make it all the way or close to all the way back.
and sea state dependent of course, but if it gets bad, I would have the life raft.
