Default ** SOLD ** Avon Offshore 8 Man Life Raft

I have decided to buy a smaller raft for my boat so this one is for sale. I have it listed on e-bay but if a THT'er has a need please send me a PM.

Thanks,
HH

Still for sale. I may re-list it on e-bay. I don't know why I had the auction end on new years day. The first guy that offers me the reserve price plus shipping gets it. I will wait a couple of days before re-listing.
