We service what we sell: We operate two USCG approved liferaft servicing facilities, and we're manufacturer certified for more than 10 liferaft brands, EPIRBs and PLBs, immersion suits, life jackets and more.  So, when you have a question or want the inside scoop about what's what, you'll know that you're talking to someone that's actually seen the raft, worn the PFD, or tested the EPIRB themselves.  Check out our service department here.

We take it personally: We truly do take it personally if you're not 100% satisfied with your experience.  We want to earn your business, not just for today, but for many years to come.  We understand the power of good relationships and the trust that can only be created from following through on the big and little things alike.  We're still human and we make mistakes, but it's how we handle them that makes us different.
