Default Revere RePack

Dan,
My Revere 6 man Offshore Ocean raft should be brought in this spring for its first repacking.
What can I expect? Can I wait for it? How much does a repack of this caliber usually cost?
Thanks in advance
Tim

I went to LRSE today for a viewing of my raft inflated along with a crash course on what to expect should I ever need to use it.

For answers to you questions I would pick up the phone and ask them directly. They are very easy to deal with and from what I saw pretty busy doing exceptional work.

no, they run a series of tests/inspections and one is a leak test that takes quite a while to ensure the raft holds pressure for a certain amt. of time.

They do however have a bunch of pick up drop off spot so maybe that would make it easier for you?.

Tim,

Dan asked me to respond, my name is Brian Kinsella and there are a couple of factors involved in servicing a L/R such as last service date etc. but a general price would be in the $500-$1000 area and our turnaround is in the 2-3 week area. Respond or call me at 1-800-451-2127. Thanks, Brian Kinsella

these guys are great.. been using them for about 9 years, they inspect and repack my raft every year (commercial use/ charter), have seen there operation when dropping off or picking up the raft, its clean and professional. i trust my raft will work properly and have all proper gear in it if i ever have to use it. the cost is the cost, its very inexpensive insurance..
