Dufour Owners Association: new forum reply to Valise Liferaft storage dimensions 385 GL

New reply from Peter Martin

<p>I replaced the life raft on my 385GL last year.  My boat is in Greece and I am in England but the Open Sea 8 man life raft (that Dufour equipped the boat with when new) dimensions were 80x53x32. There was a little room to spare.  I opted to replace it with a canister liferaft with separate grab bag which made it lighter to lift out – I now have to pad the space to stop the canister knocking as it’s smaller.  But I’m happier with the new arrangement. </p>

<p>If anyone is at their boat and knows or could measure the under helm seat life raft storage dimensions that would be very much appreciated. My raft is now about at replacement time but I'm 5 hrs drive from the boat.</p>
<p>Many Thanks</p>
