US Coast Guard Approved IBA and Liferaft Solution for Vessels Operating in
US Coastal Waters.
USCG Change in Regulations
USCG has stipulated that as of 26 February 2016 all commercial vessels
sailing in US coastal waters must have an approved survival craft onboard
that ensures no part of an individual is immersed in water. This means that
basic life floats and similar systems must be phased out and replaced by
approved craft in order for the vessel to meet the new requirement.
The VIKING IBA and Coastal Liferafts are both approved according to the new
regulation. However, there can be certain situations where the Coastal
Liferaft would be a better choice, for example if operations involve cold
waters with exceptionally bad weather.The insulated floor and a canopy
provide additional protection against the elements. The IBA is designed for
fair weather where quick rescue is expected.
