    Lu you said:  What good does it do to know your position if you are in a life raft?   You have no motive power.  Your boat is designed to keep you afloat, not to move.  It has no sails, no motor...

    I suppose there’re always set and drift of the ocean currents and wind if you don’t put the sea anchor out.  I see in The Times today a camera lost by a lady scuba diving from Scotland washed up 600 miles away in Sweden.  Also, you might be lucky enough to have a Type Q dinghy which also supplied sails and an instruction sheet on ‘How to sail’.  See http://www.defencesurveyors.org.uk/Images/Ranger/Ranger%20Volumes/Ranger%20Winter%202014%203D.pdf pages 70-73.  DaveP
