LIFE FLOATS & BUOYANT APPARATUSES

USCG APPROVED
1200 Series | 1300 Series | 1400 Series | 1600 Series

• Tough resilient vinyl surface-easily boarded, comfortable in the water – no hard surfaces.

• Lightweight yet easily exceeds the most severeU.S.C.G. tests. Ease of handling is one of our mostvalued features.

• Less storage space required for equal raft capacity; compare dimensions…you’ll be amazed!

• No exposed metal hardware – all beckets secured inside the float body.

• Double webbing, sunlight or weather never reaches supporting beckets.

• Solid closed-cell plastic throughout; bullet holes would have only a minimal effect on buoyancy. Will not rot or mildew.

Available with GRS!

This incorporates a Glass Reinforced Surface into the regular vinyl surface and produces an almost impenetrable skin yet remains slightly resilient. When ordering simply add GRS to the model No., i.e. No. 1208-GRS.

IMPORTANT: All rafts are now required to have retroreflective tape per U.S.C.G. Requirement.
