Indeed it is. And, if you want to hear it directly from the horse’s mouth (well, Doug’s mouth, anyway!), come to our Migration in Duluth in mid-June… Doug will be there, and we’ll have the opportunity to practice climbing into a raft while fully clothed - in the hotel swimming pool!
Jaap: And I think Winslow will be there as well.
When I lived in Florida and travelled overwater a lot, I used to own a raft. It was a Winslow. Like many things in life you get what you pay for. In the case of rafts, better materials and more features cost money.
What do rafts, Survival kits, Insurance, smoke detectors and attorneys all have in common? You hope never to need them, but when you do, you want the best, the price is almost irrelevant and you absolutely want it them to work as advertised.
