Recreational fisherman / boater.
Carolina Classic. Usually fish within 30 miles of shore with occasional trip out to 50 miles. Considering a 6 passenger raft. Have REPAIR and major safety equipment.
Please comment on the Revere Off Shore, Ocean often described as a best valve. What would you recommend considering a reasonable cost for reinspection?

My first question is do you have your license to sell your catch, and are you designating days to do this? If you do not life rafts like the Revere Offshore Ocean as well as the Plastimo Offshore+ are good value rafts. You have a lot of options to look at. One raft that is not mentioned too much on this forum is DBC. DBC is a very well built life raft, and form the service standpoint of view it lasts a very long time, and in comparison to other rafts it is inexpensive to service. Other nice benefits, it has two offshore versions you can shoose from, the Swiftsure, and the Swiftsure Global, the only difference is that the Global version has a boarding ramp, inflatable floor, and insualted canopy. In addition to these two rafts you have three choices in the equipment pack that is inside this life raft, a basic pack, a racing pack, and an offshore pack. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
