I would imagine that most of my readers are familiar with the type of free-fall life boat that the Captain and JakJak use to escape the ship at the end of The Zombie Game. But just in case you've never seen one, this is what it looks like. They're rigged to launch from the vessel by plunging into the sea off a rail-system. They roll like crazy and if you don't become sea sick almost immediately -- really, violently, sea sick -- due to the wild motion and confined perspective, then consider yourself lucky. The second illustration is from the film "Captain Phillips." GS
