Capsize Questions

Donald Crowhurst came up with an interesting anti-turtle device that involved quickly deploying floatation bags fixed to the top of the map and a sensor device below that would (in theory) inflate the bags if the boat ever tipped.

Of course, he went insane and jumped off his boat in the middle of the Atlantic before he could ever finish rigging it up.

Maybe the life vest is the way to go.
