Anyone who is on a desert island, sooner or later faces a choice: stay on the island and wait for rescue or death, or build a raft and sail to the mercy of the ocean, in search of salvation. The decision depends on the temperament and risk, daring personality. Here it is difficult to advise. Some people are so cowardly that life will not dare to escape from the island. Others – all his actions send out to get off the island as soon as possible.
Extremes are never good. Do not be afraid, but do not get excited and. In any case, everything must be well thought out and weigh all the factors. Read more [...]
We have already said in our note that the ponds, especially River – a true opportunity to find a way to civilization. So you were in the ravines in the lowlands, we came to a small river or stream, and then – to a large river. Logically, it is necessary move along the river, until a settlement or signs of people. But there is often a serious problem – riverbanks are usually impassable and move along the difficult, long and dangerous.That is why, the most effective way to move along the river – an alloy. Float down the river, and faster and more efficiently than to break Read more [...]
In extreme conditions often faced with the need to cross the water hazard (lake, large river, sea), rafted down the river to escape from uninhabited Islands. To solve all these tasks need plavstredstvo. The simplest and best solution – to build a raft or catamaran from scrap materials (trees, drift wood, twigs, vines). In this article we'll talk about making rafts for a relatively long travel on water expanses.
So, you were going to have to build a simple craft. The first thing is to pick up the basic the material for the raft. This is 9 times out of 10 will be wood, large trunks of trees. Read more [...]

LIN PENG. This man was able to survive on a raft in the ocean 133 of the day, without having to assume no supplies water nor food.November 23, 1942 in the Atlantic German submarine U-172 found the ship and torpedoed it. According to various estimates and sources of the 55 crew members managed to escape 11 mariners. One of them was the Navigator of Chinese origin Lin Peng. Finding that the vessel is immersed, Peng put on a life jacket and jumped overboard before he exploded boilers, completed launched torpedo. After spending two hours in the water, he found the standard eight-foot life raft and Read more [...]

Plums thresholds because of their small length and large waves rarely move significantly raft rowed, so the threshold is very important visit. The main thing that is required to solve during the inspection - which part of the drain enter and how to deploy the raft, so he came out of the drain in the right place. The task is difficult, it is not always handle even the most experienced pilots. For this reason, perhaps before you start to pay attention to the approaches and their results. If special requirements for exit discharge not dive into the middle of it. This is safer and more fun. If the Read more [...]
Swim on the rocky areas with high sun better: if seen from a distance, not only surf, but the stone itself. In cloudy weather, or closer to dusk, when the brightness of the sky brightness is much higher ground, difficult to navigate on the river: water, reflecting the sky, the light becomes monotonous. Difficult to have a raft before sunset against the sun - shines any small wave river gleams across the width, and impossible to understand anything. Hard water and rain, especially strong. He knocks down all traces of foam breakers, smoothes small waves, and remain visible only large stones. Therefore, Read more [...]
Sea on a raft
Crew and cargoRaft crew should consist mainly of the rowers. On> challenging rivers should never shun extra pair of hands, so make oars so that they could all work. However unlikely to consistently and in full force to act on the lust rowed more than 4 people, so if people in the group over 10, it is worth doing 2 rafts.
All the people on the raft commanded by one person, which is called a pilot. Management based on a majority vote, the loudest voices in the moment and other forms of collegial leadership on difficult rivers persist. The principle is suitable head is good, two Read more [...]

Assemblage compositionThe most common ways to connect logs becoming - the bond dowels and their mating vitsami. In the first method in the grooves near the ends of the sawn timber, put the cross bars - the key - and there wedges. The design gives a very tough and durable. Most rafts for navigation on challenging rapids rivers collect so. In the second method the longitudinal logs tied vitsami (twisted trunks or branches of young trees) to two thin cross logs - Ronzhin. Raft on vitsah less reliable than keyed, but is faster.

This may happen suddenly. When you sleep in your cabin, or walk with someone on the deck. You may feel a strong blow, the explosion that rocked the ship or a burning smell, or easy roll, which gradually increases with time. Shipwreck! People refuse to believe what is happening, panic starts, if the crew does not take any action. May turn off lights, sirens howling, fly into the air flares ...

Remember: before moving body of water, measure the water temperature. If the water is very cold — can't go: cold water can cause you a shock and paralyze. If the water is cold tolerant — go.
• Choose a direction crossing the river at an angle of 45° upstream and never try to cross the river directly.
• Always cross the river where shallow or sandy bottom allows you to stand firmly on his feet.
• Try to avoid the rocky places, because a fall can cause you serious injury.
• Before you enter the water, Read more [...]

THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE RAFTS INFLATABLE TUBES.There are two types of inflatable rafts: rafts collected from the car (tractor) or volleyball cameras (the latter from time to time referred to as catamarans or trimarans).When calculating the capacity of the raft here as well as in the construction of wood, take into account the weight not only of crew and cargo, and all surface constructions. Despite the fact that the capacity of the cameras during the voyage remains the same, you should always have a sufficient supply of buoyancy in the event of a puncture of one, and can be" and 2 cameras immediately.In Read more [...]
Here's something Under Naryl LIKE FUN, you judge.Raft of ground-tents
BP to boost Fording can be successfully applied raft of two cape tents proposed senior lieutenant Prosyanyuk. Make the specified raft very easily.
On detailed cape impose straw which two opposite sides attract each other and connect the string through the loops. The ends of the cylinder obtained straw stuff down inside and ends collected in the unit (see Fig.). Related thus two cape placed close to each other, seams up. From one end of a stick tie knots thickness of 2-3 cm and a length of 80-100 cm top, closer to the end Read more [...]

Most of the cities is on the beach, river and bay on them with great success can be overthrown from the city, or at least they have to cross to get to the place from whence it will be easier to continue their journey.
