In this classic simulation, a group is stranded on a rubber life raft with minimal supplies including:
* Fishing kit
* Mosquito netting
* Shark repellant
* Shaving mirror
* Two chocolate bars . . . and ten other items

Participants work individually, then as a group, to assess the items salvaged from a yachting accident, based on their value for survival. Results are then compared with the expert rankings supplied by the U.S. Merchant Marines. Through self-scoring, the group immediately sees how well they performed.

Timing: 1-1/2 hours

Audience: Work teams--4 to 9 team members may participate at one time--several groups may be directed simultaneously
