AFM Lifeboats...

The Africa Mercy carries two 50-man lifeboats and two 150-man lifeboats. This gives her a lifesaving capacity of 400 in the main boats, plus another 210 in the inflatable rafts. This gives a total of 610 people, which is much more than the Africa Mercy would ever carry. I was very pleased with how my model lifeboats turned out, hanging in their davits between decks 7 and 8. :-) My model is nearing completion!
