My mum used to be up in the Black Isle - Cromarty.

Here are some that are local! Small ones though.

Are you looking for the one, single inflation bag to keep the vessel afloat (to use the vessel as a life raft)? I remember those big bags being sold in the 80's and 90's - but I have not seem or heard of them in 10 years or so.

I think that the advent of the 406 EPIRB, a survival suit and easy insurance has replaced the feeling that you need to 'take care' of yourself.

Good luck then,
David
