Will no doubt see you around and will come by and say hello.
I did my sea survival course - well worth it how ever much you think you know - may change views completely. My personal view is that I dont think a liferaft is particularly useful in a rib. I would have thought that if there is a risk of capsize, then auto righting inflation on an appropriate a-frame would be more appropriate.
On the other hand I sail aswell and I think liferafts have an very important purpose in other cases.
