I worked for Viking liferafts briefly a few years ago. A guy brought his raft in for service and asked us to put a couple of books and a pack of fags inside just in case!

Am I the only one who is wondering what the books were ? Please tell us the books you chose, you could have had a lot of fun with that like select two of the following;

Moby Dick
20 Thousand Leagues Under The Sea
The Titanic
50 Shades Of Grey (no I haven't read it)
Jaws

Any others ?

The Bible may have been a good choice or Chris Ryans survival guide

LOL

If only !!! Its maybe the one thing that Steve hasn't had on the boat yet ? And I'm never aksing anyone ever again - so no issues there !

It was a 'thanks' for sorting the Folly Jolly and we decided it was going to be our rough water gauge/ G meter for the return trip - if the cork came out was was rough !

I won't be carrying any. Personally I feel they've had their day & are outmoded. No doubt I'll get some flak from some quarters.
