WTB hard container for Viking offshore 6 man raft. I have a 6 man Viking offshore raft in a valise and want to repack it in a hard case at the next service interval. Unfortunately, Viking sells the hard case alone for almost half the price of a new raft. If anyone has a non-usable raft, I would like to purchase the container. Thank you.

Hey Mark -

How much is Viking asking for the container? Have you checked with the local Viking Service Center? I would think some would come available around the Boat Show in January/February.

Hello Anthony. That’s what I thought! I did speak to the authorized Viking service center in Seattle ... they quoted me a price of something over $1K. They said that “just like cars, the price of separate components is much higher than the price of the package”. I certainly was unprepared for that news. Have a good Rhanksgiving!
