Asunto:  Airborne Lifeboats

During WWII experiments were made to drop lifeobats from B-17 bombers to crews downed on water. The contraption was later abandoned. The boats weighted over a ton so they didn't seem to be practical as survival equipment.

Just consider that if you are going to drop over a ton of survival gear on top of somebody, you could well send them an inflatable raft plus - literally - a ton of medical gear, food and so on, not to mention the fact that such a heavy boat could sink on impact, if it didn't hit the water properly.
