Always Be Prepared
A life raft is one of the most crucial pieces of marine survival gear on your boat. With our wide variety of raft types it’s easy to find the one you need whether you mostly cruise along the coast or are outfitting a commercial vessel. Choose from coastal life rafts, near short life rafts, offshore life rafts, compact life rafts and commercial life rafts. We also carry sea anchors and drag devices and survival supplies. It is important to build or buy a ditch bag, and if rescue will take longer where you’re boating, it is important to store emergency food rations, survival equipment and other basic necessities.We recommend including an EPIRB or wearing a PLB and bringing flares to increase your chance of being rescued. For individuals working in dangerous conditions on boats, West Marine carries survival suits that are water-tight, float and will protect the wearer from fire, hypothermia and more. Whatever your safety and survival needs, you’ll find what you need at West Marine.
