LIFE RAFT DEPLYOYMENT SAFETY DRILL

This past weekend my brother and I had a life raft drill in our pool.  We did it to help us prepare in case we ever had a real emergency on board our boat. We both have done it before, but more practice is better. During the life raft drill, my brother Ryan pulled the cord to inflate the life raft. After the life raft inflated I jumped in and then Ryan jumped in the pool and climbed in. In the raft there were emergency supplies like food, water, fishing hooks and flares.  Flares help attract nearby planes or boats in an emergency. I think the life raft drill helped prepare me and my brother for our boat trip because it is important to be  prepared in case of an emergency. (Click on you tube video link below!)

    Great job boys, being prepared is always the best plan and practice is a must. In an emergency your reaction time to a situation can be critical, so practice, practice, practice.

    It looks like the raft inflated, but I couldn’t see the outboard on it? How are you going to waterski from the raft without an outboard?
