  • Today Ima show you how lifeboat works, the lifesaving equipment inside and well...

  • Taste emergency ration.

  • There's a 360 version that gives you a more interactive experience so make sure to check

  • it out afterwards.

  • Do note that different ships have different types and sizes of lifeboats.

  • There are tons of manufacturers out there and they all make different models, either

  • opened or totally enclosed, davit launched or free fall.

  • So if you are new to a ship make sure to read the manuals on how to operate one, it might

  • just save your life.

  • Ours is a davit-launched type.

  • The two cradles swings out and lower the lifeboat by fall wire when activated.

  • Let's check out the inside first, we'll be going in from the aft hatch.

  • As you can tell the interiors aren't that comfortable, everything is design only for

  • survival in mind, which is to fit as many people as possible.

  • The space inside the boat is like an oval with center blocked off by structural reinforcements.

  • The orange bits are Padding and cushions.

  • The lifeboat equipment is mostly stored under the seats in compartments.

  • This is the command console, conning seat.

  • Let's take a closer look at the control console.

  • We have the engine ignition, steering wheel, throttle, compass, lights, hydrostatic hook

  • release, and painter release.

  • Underneath where I am sitting is the diesel engine.

  • Next to the seat is this remote wire that's connected to brake governor.

  • It's part of the system to lower the lifeboat which you can do so from two locations, outside

  • or inside the boat.

  • No matter which way, first there's three securing pins that we must take out, 2 on

  • each cradle stopper and 1 on the brake governor.

  • From the outside, you just lift up the brake governor and the cradle will swing out.

  • If the seas are calm you should release an embarkation ladder and climb down.

  • Only in an emergency situation should you ever jump into the water directly because

  • it's quite dangerous, you have to worry about debris, hypothermia and swimming rough

  • seas etc.

  • To lower from the inside, you can just pull onto the remote wire that I talked about as

  • it is connected to the brake governor.

  • Either way, once the boat is in or near the water, activate the hydrostatic hook release

  • and or you are good to go.

  • And now onto the lifeboat equipment, the lifesaving equipment are standard and found in most if

  • not all lifeboats because IMO enforces it under the SOLAS and LSA Code.

  • Let's start off with the most important one.

  • "Survival at Sea" Booklet Under a real emergency situation, everyone

  • will be panicking and draw a blank as to what to do.

  • So once arrive at a lifeboat first thing to do is to open this book and start from there,

  • it tells you step by step how to proceed and what to check for, like selecting a leader,

  • assigning duties, checking that all hatches and openings are covered.

  • Further down the book you've even got what fish is edible, how to navigate by stars,

  • and what birds which.

  • It really has everything you need to survive at sea.

  • The Designated Rescue boats will have extra Lifejackets, Immersion suits and a set of

  • towing lines made of nylon.

  • Sea Sick Tablets, one of the first things the survival at sea book will tell you is

  • to distribute sea sick pills and take one each.

  • Throwing up inside the lifeboat affects everyone's wellbeing and morale, might even cause a chain

  • reaction.

  • Buoyant Oars, for rowing in the event the engine runs out of fuel.

  • Boat Hooks

  • Noits really just to grab things or lines.

  • Sea anchor, this cone shape anchor helps stabilize the boat.

  • Thermal Protective Aids, TPA, you wear this like a cocoon to keep warm.

  • Inside our pyrotechnic box we have Rocket Parachute Flares

  • Buoyant Smoke Signals And Hand Flares

  • The instructions are all printed on the items, flares are best used at night.

  • Smoke for day time.

  • Smoke and flares should be facing down wind to avoid blow back.

  • Rocket parachute obviously you should point it up.

  • Lifeboat Rations and Water

  • Buoyant rescue quoit, toss it to a person in the waters and pull them in.

  • Fishing Tackle, to catch fish

  • Bailer, to scoop water out if water gets into the boat

  • First Aid Kit, all kinds of medical first aid items inside.

  • Tin Opener

  • Measuring Cup, to ration water.

  • Dipper to grab water or sample the sea bed.

  • Hatchet, to chop anything

  • Muti-purpose Jack Knife, for mult-purpose.

  • Torch & Spare Battery

  • Spare Whistle

  • Sea Sick Bags

  • Signaling Mirror, there's a hole at back

  • that is actually see through so during day time you point it at a ship and wiggle it

  • around to reflect the sun ray.

  • Hopefully it will catch the attention of the target ship.

  • Life-saving signal card, its waterproof and ours comes in English and Chinese.

  • Bucket.

  • Radar Reflector, its often underestimated.

  • this small aluminum thing can actually paint a target on radar as large as a 300m ship.

  • Fire Extinguisher, dry powder

  • Rain Collector, stick this outside when it

  • rains and it will funnel the water through the tube.

  • Whosh and that's it, if you liked this video make sure to give it a thumbs up.

  • subscribe for more.

  • And as always if you got any questions leave it down below, join the discussion, and I'll

  • see you next time :D
