Response to Life raft damage

Jim, the life rafts are for the most part are visiual props and are not Coast Guard approved. The foam used in their construction was not fuel resistant and when boat 2 plugs were pulled the bilge water had very small amount of fuel fuel in it. Also UV rays from the sun may have helped the fuel.
