Re: 16 Months at adrift at Sea

One of the things I learned while reading Adrift was that those inflatable life rafts have a very short lifespan of just 42 days after inflation. At that point the seams tend to fall apart. This particular raft managed to hold together, just barely for nearly twice that long.
