BOE has a good sale going on life rafts and I am definitely buying one in the next week.

There are some super ultra light rafts that look like they'd be OK on a calm day and the more robust looking and significantly heavier rafts from Revere like the coastal commander which is what I am considering.

For those of you that run smaller boats say in the 20 - 30 foot range, which life raft do you carry and why?

Viking Rescyou 6 Man liferaft
http://www.northeastmarineelectronics.com/viking-rescyou-coastal-liferaft-6-person-valise.aspx

Excellent reviews. Made in Denmark ( Real Quality ). All I saw were positives when doing my initial search on google.

Easy to stow and retrieve. Only needs repacking every 3 years.
Still feel it's the best option for size, weight and use in fishing NC.

Here is a youtube video of the features of the raft;
