Default Rent a raft?

Just thinking out loud.... I go offshore only a couple times a year and would really like to have a liferaft & Epirb when I do, but the combo cost some serious potatos... does anybody do daily/weekly rentals?

Try these people I purchased there basic model for $1095.00 It will keep you out of the water until help arrives. Of course It' not ideal for a sailng trip to Bermuda but for what I do ( up to 100 miles offshore, NYC shipping lanes/Northeast Canyons) .

I have a smiliar boat for comparison HS Vector 2596.

If I were you I would check out the FBO at a local airport. Here in FL almost all the companies rent the rafts for a reasonable rate (somewhere near $25/day). Just an idea. If you let me know what airport(s) you're closest to in Philly I'll find out which company offers the survival equipment and let you know.
