The Regulations

As stated in the previous page commercial ships must have SOLAS liferafts. On the contrary for the liferafts intended for recreational boats there is no international regulation accepted by all countries. Consequently each country sets its own demands and standards regarding the construction, design, and standard equipment. Lalizas Cruiser is approved according to the standards set by Greece and Italy, while the Lalizas Atlantic is according to the Greek requirements.

Instructions for use

A liferaft should be located on a boat in a position where it is easily accessible in an emergency. It is suggested that you only board a liferaft when there is an immediate risk of sinking, when the vessel is on fire and when rescue is not close at hand.
When launching a liferaft follow the steps listed below:

  1. Tie the painter rope (activation line) to a strong point on board the boat.
  2. Throw the liferaft over board.
  3. Give the painter a strong pull to activate the gas cylinder.
  4. When the liferaft inflates, get on board and help those who cannot.
  5. Cut the painter rope with the knife located near the Liferaft entrance.
  6. If the boat is sinking draw away to a safe distance, at least one and a half times the boat length.
  7. Inside the liferaft there is a survival manual, read it carefully following the instructions to the letter, use the emergency equipment correctly.

Additional Equipment

All liferafts are provided with standard equipment that will help you survive while awaiting rescue. Nevertheless Lalizas suggests that in case you have to abandon the vessel, have ready and in an easily accessible place a dry bag ( see page 19) with additional equipment, such as:

  • Necessary personal belongings (glasses, medicines, sun block); 
  • Food and water; 
  • Flashlight with extra batteries, EPIRB, Radio, VHF; 
  • Navigation equipment (map, paper, pencil, ruler); 
  • Extra hand and smoke signals.

Attention: The additional equipment should be objects that will help to your survival and rescue. Anything more is superfluous and unnecessary weight that must not be carrying with you, as it may comprise your situation in the liferaft.

Storage / Service

Storage - Positioning
CANISTER: Liferafts in canister should always be placed on the deck and on a spot that it cannot be drifted away by the water. For a secure placement it is best that you use the Lalizas stainless steel fixing supports. Under no circumstances can you use the canister as a seat.
VALISE: Liferafts in valise should be placed in a dry place where it is not exposed to humidity, UV rays, and it is not pressured or knocked by other objects.

Service
It is imperative that you take your liferaft for its scheduled service in order to be certain of a proper operation in time of need. Furthermore in most countries it is obligatory by the national marine authorities to have the liferafts of commercial ships inspected. During a service at a Lalizas liferaft station, the liferaft is opened, the gas cylinder is checked and weighed, and finally the liferaft is inflated to check for any signs of weariness. If it is necessary the appropriate repairs and additions in equipment are made. In case that in between two services you observe any kind of weariness contact your nearest liferaft station immediately.
Attention: If you do not have your liferaft serviced at the determined time, or you have it serviced at another liferaft station you immediately lose your 12-year guarantee.
