We purchased our Givens life raft in April 2009, before bringing the boat to NC. The life raft needs to be serviced and repacked before we depart the US. Our original plan was to hand deliver the raft to Givens once we were in the northeast this summer. However, we discovered from the Cruisers Forum that Givens Marine Survival Company has filed for bankruptcy. Therefore, we handed our raft over to Jarrett Bay who has shipped it to Norfolk for servicing. We are supposed to see our life raft back in about a month. Since we’re supposed to be headed out to sea within the next 2 months, my fingers are crossed that we get the raft back in time!
