25 Man Liferaft - Survitec Zodiac (USED)

I have a Survitec Zodiac 25 Man Liferaft that was accidentally inflated on a sea trial. The fiberglass housing was lost and the SOLAS survival packs were discarded (they got wet). The CO2 bottle will need to be recharged.

Make me an offer if interested - or trade. I have a 38' cutter and would be interested in storm sails, light air sails, sea anchor, or ???

Thanks!

Hope the 25th man aboard is bringing a few bottles of rum. That is going to be a heck of a party.

We had a HUGE liferaft in Camp Doha in Kuwait, filled it with water and it was a swimming pool.

Correction, it was Ali Al Salem that had the liferaft swimming pool
Doha had the "marble palace" and honest to God Olympic sized I think refrigerated pool, right at the water desalination plant and use of it donated I think by a Sheikh

No Rum, but all the "near beer" you could drink

Re: 25 Man Liferaft - Survitec Zodiac (USED)

Thanks guys, pretty funny stuff! It is a little big for even a mega yacht, huh? But you never know if some bar somewhere might need it as a jell-o wrestling ring. Maybe I need to change the listing name?

Ha ha!

Maybe... While I doubt that any of us here has spent any time in a raft, it might be fun posting opinions on liferaft v crew size??? I can definitely see the downsides for say a crew of 4 utilizing it... But, can see a TON of PRO's too...

At least your thinking outta the box with the jello thing!

Another bump for ya anyway...

Merry Christmas bud...
