  • winslow raft recertification

    Just got a call that my winslow 3 year recert was done.$900.00. Does that sound right? When I called they said it would be roughly $375.00. I have a winslow coastal 6 person valise vacuum sealed. Just curios if anyone else paid that much.

    $650-675 last year without vacuum seal, sounds right, though a bit expensive. A local guy is now certified to do Winslow rafts so you can save some $$ on shipping not having to ship down to Florida. I believe they pick up at West Marine, you can call Winslow and they will give you there info for the next time.

        Wow, Then that sound high! I think my shipping charges were about $100-125 to send it to Winslow and the raft was 3 yr old so it needed some items replaced. I thought when I spoke to Winslow the Vac seal was an extra $250-300. I would give a call down to Winslow to verify the charges.

          Sounds high

          I paid 1K total for repacking a 4 person Plastimo and replacing an EPIRB battery to LRSE last winter. I seem to recall the EPIRB battery/recert was in the 350-400$ range, meaning the life raft repack was 600$.

            I paid $250 for the battery on my Pain Wessex last year, but the $900 seems a little high. I'm going to make a few phone calls on monday. I don't mind paying but I dont want to be ripped off.

                  I have a Switlik 4 person inshore raft in the valise...not as sofisticated as some of these larger offshore which I'm sure are more expensive. I dropped it off and picked it up last Spring to avoid the shipping charges at a place in Seacaucus, NJ. They serviced the raft for $300. If anyone is interested, you can find them on the internet.

                    I spoke to them about my Revere and was quoted a similar price. Just a long haul from South Jersey. Has anyone ever used Vane Brothers in Phily?
