WWII Life Raft Specifications
Posted by Stan Brewer on February 14, 2014, 1:29 pm
I am looking for specifications, sizes etc, of the Life Rafts used in WWII. These are the (I believe) Cork life rafts that had a mesh bottom. They would carry a number of survivors, but not keep them dry.
Not to be confused with the Pneumatic one-man rafts.
I believe they may have been specified in "Wartime Safety Measures" or possibly 46 C.F.R. around 153.4 around 1943.
