Liferaft Test, Part 4

11 December 2008
Richard
Now that the liferaft had been inflated, a check of the functionality and expiry dates of all the equipment inside (sitting in front of the raft in the picture) was done.

The sun canopy has been pulled down over the liferaft in this picture. Underneath (not shown, but inspected), are pockets that hold water to keep the raft relatively stable.

The flares, flashlight and batteries were out of date and replaced, and the expiry dates on all equipment were recorded in the liferaft logbook.

The test is not finished at this point--a few days must pass without the raft deflating to be able to certify it. I expect to have the raft back aboard sometime next week.
