I've spent the weekend watching as many Ray Mears videos as I possibly can and came accross an interesting one regarding Sea Survival. I can't
really remeber the specifics but one case was a fella who survived in a raft at Sea for something like 88 days (?).
Using a spear gun to ward off sharks, a basic fishing kit to catch his food and a reverse osmosis pump for his water this man managed to survive for
more than 2 1/2 months at Sea.

What I wanted to ask is how would you cope in such a situation? Also, I'd welcome any tips/tricks/techniques on survival at sea as its something that
I probably won't have to deal with myself but neverless something I find interesting.
