$600 on the low side to over a $1000. I had mine done last year and it was the "it needs everything Solas A repack" for over $1000.00

Default Viking RescYou Pro 8-man

Is it still available? Was the repacking done professionally? Does it have the certification label attached from the recent inspection?
If so, my offer is $1200 including freight to Princeton, NJ.
Please let me know by the end of tomorrow Wednesday January 26, 2011
Thanks

That's a great price on an 8 person with a current certification!
Do you mind me asking (or PM me) where you got a recert done so inexpensively?
Thanks!

Date of manufacture: 11/2005
Includes a Solas A Pack
Has a brand new inspection as of this week and isn't due for another one for three years!



Technical specifications of VIKING Liferaft type RescYou™ Pro 8 persons – Self-righting type
General:
The raft has been designed and tested according to ISO 9650/1 for a stowage height of 6 metres when equipped with emergency packs types “RORC “ pack, SOLAS B pack, USA “E” pack or French Class II packs. The raft has been tested in temperatures ranging from -15 degrees Celsius to +65 degrees Celsius
Dimensions of liferaft:
The weight of the raft varies as per the equipment pack fitted and whether it is packed in valise or container.
Material:
Approved materials for the manufacture of life rafts acc. to ISO 9650/1. The basic material of VIKING liferafts is a strong webbing covered with natural rubber. One of the extremely advantageous features of rubber is its elasticity. In fact, natural rubber represents one of the most elastic materials in the market.
Elasticity also means flexibility which improves reliability in an emergency causing the liferaft to be exposed to quite heavy loads.
During numerous tests made in the right element, the flexibility of the liferaft has proved crucial to its functioning when deployed at extremely low temperatures, when being boarded and when being loaded in rough sea.
Approved materials acc. to ISO 9650/1.
The two entrances are closed by means of zip fasteners. The closing device has been designed for easy opening and closing of the entrance.
Vacuum Packed - 3 year service intervals
Valise:
The valise is made from water repellent materials. Lights on the liferaft:
On top of the liferaft a 4.3 cdl strobe light is fitted and a permanent light is fitted on the inside.
Ballast pockets.
Underneath the floor 4 ballast pockets (each containing 60 litres) are positioned evenly around the circumference of the raft. The pockets are designed for rapid filling.
Sea Anchor:
A sea anchor fulfilling the requirement of the above mentioned ISO standard is included with the equipment
Operation:
Being self-righting, the liferaft will turn back to an upright position if it inflates in an overturned position.
Standard Features
  • Available in 4, 6 and 8 person capacities.
