Flares – red parachute * SOLAS specification red parachute flares, with self-container launchers, reach 300 m (1000 ft) in altitude and burn for a minimum of 40 seconds. Pack plenty for any trip to sea; they can attract attention at great distances, including ships that are over your horizon. Orange smoke flares are the first choice for daylight signalling. Radar reflector* This is a SOLAS requirement if an efficient radar transponder (SART) is not included in the liferaft. A raft cannot reflect radar waves but unfortunately it is hard to get a reflector high enough to be effective especially in a big sea.
It’s all too common to find the kit consists of patches and glue that require a clean and dry surface, almost inconceivable in a liferaft! Make up your own kit, with equipment that is suitable for your liferaft and pack it near the top of your grab bag, with the following: • Spare canopy and raft material. • Glue that will work in a wet and salty environment. • Variety of needles, including sail repair needles, some waxed thread and sewing awl. • Assorted sized leak stopper plugs for a temporary repair.
Rule out the possibility of a false alarm, which sadly still accounts for eight out of nine transmissions. • Give important extra information from your Voyage Details Plan (see Appendix). Flashlight/torch* A waterproof model to be used for signalling is included in all standard liferaft emergency packs, with a spare bulb and batteries. Even a very small flashlight is extremely effective at night for signalling. Some liferafts have no internal light, so pack a flashlight near the top of your grab bag in case you have to abandon ship at night.
