There is no one universal method of rating raft capacities (see here).
In fact, there are several different methods and governmental agencies
worldwide that rate the capacity of a life raft based on the following
criteria: usable floor area, inflated buoyancy, size of an average
individual, and their concept of how long someone might be in the raft
before rescue, not to mention how you find yourself to be there, i.e. from a sinking vessel or a ditched aircraft.
As a result, SWITLIK takes the position that a life raft's capacity
is truly defined by its total size in floor area and inflated buoyancy.
How many "people" that translates into depends upon your usage and
interpretation of the above criteria. A raft that might safely support 6
or 8 people in an emergency for 24 hours will seem a lot smaller for a
transoceanic passage where rescue might be weeks in coming.
