Jolly Liferafts

Something to smile about.
  [vote for,

Inflatable liferafts, when inflated, are somewhat unprepossessing things; apart from the orange hi-vis bits, they're usually drab grey or black.

People obliged to use such a liferaft are most likely not going to be feeling particularly cheerful, either.

So, for a very small extra cost, and a minimal weight penalty, we propose that liferafts shoud be equipped with large, garishly-coloured inflatable decorative sections - A seahorse's head in bright blue and pink, a dragon's head and tail in bright green with red spots, a white swan's head and neck and a matching pair of folded wings.

This will also make life more interesting and varied for air-sea rescue search crews - "Hello Control, we've got the Bouncy Castle and the Giant Yellow Hedgehog in sight .... looks like Rescue 22 is closing on the Purple Penguin ...."

[Admittedly not an ideal category choice - wanted category Liferaft/Lifeboat ? ]

       Hi! I made Vehicle: Boat: Life Raft. Not ideal, but closer.

       The decorative features could also act as sails, ensuring that you will, sooner or later, reach land.

       I like the visual identification aspect.
