Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2334239A] A liferaft comprising a roof 22 and a floor (21, figure 3) separated by inflatable tubular walls 13 includes passages 28 extending between the roof 22 and the floor (21, figure 3) that allow water collected on the roof to drain away. In this way, if the liferaft is inflated from a submerged position any sea water trapped on the roof is quickly dissipated and does not hamper correct inflation of the raft. Entrance ramps 19 are also provided which each include an inflatable element in fluid communication with the inflatable walls 13 of the raft so that by selectively releasing one such ramp 19 from its stored position the ramp 19 automatically inflates and deploys.
