Boat Floatation Device – BFD 3


A hot wire technology, shaped block provides extensive floatation (500N) , encased in an extremely durable vinyl/cordura shell. The EPS block will absorb a nominal amount of water (0.02%) over a prolonged period under water – & does not break down inside the casing. If securely fastened will be the last piece of kit to come out of your boat if it is stuck! By no means rocket science – the BFD has in many instances replaced the need for airbags giving a much more reliable form of floatation.
