liferaft container

Does anybody know how to get hold of the GRP container for liferafts. The reason i ask is that my mates is Valise and wants to change (e.g changing boat).

The easy answer is go speak to the manufacture, just wondering if anybody had crossed this situation,

Don't just take any container. Suggest to first talk to an authorized service station like if you have a RFD liferaft then talk to Cosalt so the raft will have to be repacked professionally. If case of emergency you will want it to open and inflate, won't you

Service station

The chaps that you use to service the raft should be able to re-pack it into a canister for you.
