Man Overboard Boats and Rafts...

Here is a first glimpse of my Africa Mercy's emergency equipment. I'm starting with the rescue boats adn the life rafts. The Man Overboard (MOB) boats are deployed in case there is a man overboard, obviously. :-) They carry an outboard motor and can go really fast across calm seas if necessary. You can also see the six inflatable life rafts that the ship carries. Each raft is rated for a capacity of 35 persons. So in the rafts alone you could fit over 200 people. :-)
