Here is a couple of the safety equipment required or suggested for the Annapolis – Newport Race
Annapolis Inflatables has made arrangements with manufactures to offer volume pricing, which is even cheaper than internet or box chain stores. We also negotiated free inbound freight if we group buy and purchase certain quantities of these hazmat items.
All items will be for pick up only at Annapolis Inflatables. We must meet the minimum quantity for the deal to occur - similar to Groupon.
Man over board module (minimum buy 10)
Switlik MOM – 8 $612.00 plus tax
Life Rafts (minimum buy 12 mixed)
Zodiac 4 Person ISAF Valise $2058.50 plus tax
Zodiac 6 Person ISAF Valise $2185.50 plus tax
Zodiac 8 Person ISAF Valise $2426.50 plus tax
An alternative is rent to one and only Vane Brothers in Baltimore rent rafts, they have limited amount of rafts for rent and currently no ISAF rafts http://www.vanebrothers.com/Service/safety.html
The best solution is rent to one from the Non Profit BoatUS Foundation http://www.boatus.com/foundation/epirb/
