Designed for bluewater use up to 50 miles from shore, the Plastimo Cruiser ORC Life Rafts are designed for long voyages when gusts of wind with exceptional wave height can be expected. The Cruiser ORC has a double-insulated floor, double tube design, and double-firing head mechanism to ensure that should the unthinkable happen, the raft will not let you down. Includes a floating anchor with 30' line, pump, two paddles, floating knife, rescue quoit with 120' line, bailer, two sponges, repair kit, checklist/instruction manual and survival instructions. Personal survival equipment includes a rain-catching gutter on the canopy and six seasickness pills per person. Signal equipment includes three SOLAS handflares, 118sq.in. of retro-reflective tape on the canopy, one waterproof flashlight and a signal card. All equipment for survival is held in its own waterproof bag within the raft. Both container and valise hold the raft securely vacuum-packed in a hermetically sealed bag to offer total protection from the elements.
