Comments about Viking RescYou Pro ISO 9650-1/ISAF Life Raft, 6 Person, with Canister:
I have owned several life rafts over the years and the one thing I have learned is that they deteriorate if you don't have them serviced at set intervals. I have yet to have a service done that didn't come up with some flaw in the manufacturing process - from discoloration to seam separation.
This is a great life raft. Viking will tell you that they will stand behind their product but they won't give you a warranty. They say that it's to protect you in case you lapse in your service interval. Don't believe it! If they truly stood behind their product they would give you a warranty. No Waranty = no sale. If you have been sailing long enough, you know never to trust the word of someone in the boating business. Get it in writing. I'm not being cynical. I'm just being realistic. There are many dishonest people in the boating business and that's too bad.
