    Interesting...what’s the process for getting people into the rafts? Slide down the chute like construction debris into a heap of folks at the bottom?

    yep

    My father mentioned fire escapes from the building he worked in like this back in the 1960s. Fabric baffles inside slow your descent, just hope someone didn't jump in immediately behind you.

    NO HIGH HEELS!

    Simplicity is King.... For hundreds of yeas, the lifeboat concept still holds its ground.

    Can they be deployed from the high side of a heavily listing ship? That seems to be the key to rapidly evacuating a doomed vessel.

    Do the cruise ships advertise the lifeboat drills as an entertainment?

    The sealed can, E-ticket ride off the aft centerline used on many tankers and some container ships seems ideal but only if the vessel has a very small complement of crew on board.
