Now that you have planned your hydration strategy what is the next survival priority?

Answer Establishing a watch schedule to scan for ships or other boats.

Do not let apathy get a grip on you. Your main priority is to be on the look out for ships and signal them once spotted. The chances of a 1200ft long container ship noticing a tiny liferaft several miles away is very slim. Your chances are increased drastically if you fire off a signal flare when the ship is within sight.
