Life Rafts..Coastal vs Off Shore?
What's the big difference between a Coastal & an Off Shore life raft? Given that they both have two inflatable tubes, a self inflatable canopy, double floor, etc. Is the main difference the inventory of survival items that each raft has? The Off Shore having a much better compliment of equipment? I have a coastal raft (Revere Coastal Commander 2- 6 man valise) but I also have a pretty complete Abandon Ship bag that is really well stocked. (including an EPIRB, portable water maker, water bottles, canned food, first aid kit, fishing equipment, hand held radio, etc.)
