Marine Survival: Liferaft Survival Practices

Moxie Media 36 minutes

This course is part of the Marine Survival Series. Next to lifeboats, the liferaft can be your second-best choice of escape in a marine disaster. However, if you are unfamiliar with the different methods of boarding, launching, and maintaining with both davit and throw-over launched life rafts, they won't do you any good in an emergency.

This course will explain the features and uses of liferafts as well as provide advice on survival techniques once you are in one. Topics Include: Working the Painter to Inflate the Raft; Righting the Raft; Patching Leaks; The Use of Pyrotechnics to Signal Help; Setting the Sea Anchor
Closing Down the Exits to Maintain Seaworthiness
Passing out Seasickness Pills and Provisions
Bolstering Morale.
