The SeaKettle Life Raft combines safety, accessibility, and a desalination process which makes it the preferable option in cases of an emergency at sea. Since you may not be able won't have time to get fresh drinking water before being forced to abandon ship, The SeaKettle features an insulated, reliable shelter as well as fresh drinking water. The process basically pumps sea water up to a Gortex covered reservoir, where the water is subject to evaporation. The evaporated water then hits the top canopy and condenses, filling the four pockets around the raft with fresh drinking water. The Gortex cover over the reservoir allows the vapor molecules to escape, but holds in the larger liquid molecules, preventing the pockets of fresh water from becoming contaminated by the sea water. This ingenious process keeps up to five passengers sufficiently hydrated. What a great idea, because it would suck to die of thirst or from extreme temperatures you reach land or are rescued.
