I opened the equipment bag. Flares? Check. First-aid kit? Check. Drinking water? Check. Hand inflation pump. Huh? The raft's already inflated, but I'm supposed to blow up the drop-stitch floor, which separates me from the ocean with 3" of material. It took seven minutes to inflate, got my blood flowing, and raised my feet above water. (No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't avoid getting water in the bottom.) Then I just sat in the life raft, hoping to be rescued from the cold. Wait, this isn't real-I could just get back on the dock.
