You have discovered 4 liters of water rations in the life raft emergency kit. Each liter is contained in a sealed plastic bag. You also have 6 cans of Coca-Cola. How should you plan your hydration strategy?

Answer Do not drink any of it for the first 24hrs, then start rationing it.

The US coast guard recommends after boarding a liferaft to avoid drinking anything for the first 24 hrs and then start rationing your water supplies. This is based around the assumption that most people will be sufficiently hydrated upon entering the liferaft.
