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

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

release, and painter release.
Underneath where I am sitting is the diesel

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

"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

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

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

Boat Hooks
No… its 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.

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
