We received our new liferaft today. We had sent the supplier photos of the cradle for our old raft (of the same brand) and they had confirmed that it would work with the new raft as well. Accordingly, we didn’t order a new cradle. Surprise surprise, the new raft is larger after all, and the cradle is an annoying 2,5 cm too narrow. One step forward, one step back…this seems to be the golden rule for anything boat related (actually, it is normally more like “one step forward, two steps back”).
