We usualy have 3 men on board! we have job to do (save people).

Self righting bag will open on conditions like that so we resign for that option and the bottle with air. it's all the time open.

weight is lower, boat faster!

Boat faster??? With all that drag from the wind??? And surely the airbag won't self right if it is already open - or will it??? Then again maybe it will stop it going over in the first place???

why wouldn't it self right if already inflated ??? - what happens at the point of inflation that is so critical to righting the boat ??? - a self righting bag works by putting the boat at an angle where the C of G takes over and finishes the job - i don't think it matters whether it was inflated at the point of capsize or 3 weeks ago - it still has the same buoyancy.

or am I the one missing something ???

I remember reading somewhere a long time ago that a self righting bag inflated in a special way to instigate a roll over. Then again I could be totally wrong hence the ??? I put in the post!!!
