Will our 25 year old life raft float?

SV Exit Only has been on the hard for over 10 years. It's time for a major refit. One of the first things we inspect is the life raft. Our Givens life raft is now 25 years old. It was purchased for our first trip in 1993. It's been re-certified twice and thankfully has never had to be deployed. Let's hope that three time's the charm.
