Lost at Sea
I had an activity in my Teachers' College class today that I thought would be fun to share with you guys!

Instructions
  1. Read the following scenario, then rank the 15 items in order of their importance to your survival, where 1 is the most important and 15 is the least.
    Post your answer in a reply, in spoiler tags!
  2. Step 2 happens after everyone posts their lists!

scenario Wrote:You are adrift on a private yacht in the South Pacific Ocean when a fire destroys the yacht and most of its contents.

You and four other survivors are now in a large raft with oars. Your location is unclear, but you estimate that you are about 1000 nautical miles south-south west of the nearest land.

One person has just found in their pockets five $10 notes and a cigarette lighter. Everyone else's pockets are empty.

The following items are available:
  • Sextant
  • Shaving mirror
  • 22 liters of water
  • Mosquito netting
  • 1 survival meal
  • Maps of Pacific Ocean
  • Floatable seat cushioni
  • 9 liters oil-petrol mix
  • Small transistor radio
  • Shark repellent
  • 2 square meters of black plastic
  • 1 litre 20-proof rum
  • 5 metres nylon rope
  • 24 chocolate bars
  • Fishing kit

Sure, let's do this. To the best of my abilities, here's how I'd rank them. I have reasonings for these, but I think that's what we'll need in phase two rather than one, so I didn't add them so as to not influence anyone.

I'm no survival expert, and have never been on the ocean, but here's my thoughts:
EDIT: Whoops, forgot the rope.

Ok! Now you're all gonna argue and try reach a consensus about a final top 15. Do this on discord or wherever you like!

Reyweld Wrote:1000 nautical miles is 1852 km
And apparently fastest rowing is ~7 km/h
264 hours of rowing
Just isn't going to happen with our supply options
(Assuming we know where to row)

I think that reaching land is not possible, and rescue is thus the priority

RE: Lost at Sea
We reached a top 3 item consensus on Discord. I left, but maybe they're nailing down #4 at this very moment!
