Is this a good idea?

Purchase a liferaft in aus for tasman trip and then sell for a reduced priced afyer delivery trip. I get my boat home and recoop some cost while someone gets a brand new liferaft for a reduced price.

Thoughts?

Suss taking one over from here. You can probably send one over for a few hundy and have it sitting ready for you to arrive. Then all you need to do is borrow one of the 100's that are sitting around town, sail home and good to go..... using the 'If we Feck it we fix it program' of course.

Just the logistics around shipping over and can pretty much make money back when you arrive

It is pretty difficult to move liferafts around, in the Olden Days you could airfreight but these days, no way.

Life rafts are packed full of explosives. No chance of air freighting one of those. They are classified as hazardous or dangerous goods, or what ever the correct term is for something packed full of explosives. Even without the explosives, the large cylinders of compressed gas without a full proof shut off valve tend to make people nervous, especially when placing said cylinder inside a larger round cylinder and compressing it (i.e. an airplane fuselage).

 

You'll get me started on my love for flares again.... I mean explosive safety devices...
