Liferaft disposal?

Hi,

has anyone faced the problem of disposing of an unserviceable liferaft? Flares and CO2 bottle would need to be extracted? Anything else, and then what - landfill?

Thanks

I'm surprised this question even needs to be asked! Clearly, remove flares and dispose of elsewhere. Empty gas charge by inflating the thing or undo the union on the bottle, and take it to the dump like any other trash. Why would you want to remove the bottle if it is empty, unless you wanted to keep it for some reason???

Plan to have a light hearted "exercise" with ours in the nicer weather: deploy it; sit about for while getting sick (tethered, of course). Then like Morgana.
