I get my Winslow raft repacked every three years. I have the repack done at LRSE in Tiverton RI and it averages about $1000. The last repack required new LED lighting, so it was a little more.

The Crabby Lift is a no brainer in my book. Why spend $150 on something that might work, when you can spend $300 for something that does?

I can't imagine that check valve being installed as OEM. Check valves fail and they could prevent you from dewatering your boat at a critical time. Also, I would never put a shutoff valve in a bilge...
