Lost At Sea
Most probable scenarioYou are adrift on a private yacht in the south pacific. As a consequence of a fire of unknown origin, much of the yacht and its contents have been destroyed. The yacht is now slowly sinking. Your location is unclear due of the distruction of critical navigational equipment and because you and the crew were distracted trying to bring the fire under control. Your best estimate is that you are approximately one thousand miles south-southwest of the nearest land.
You have isolated exactly where you are, and you plan a trajectory to take you to safe shores. You are able to determine what direction your are going, but your attempts change directions are adversely prevented by the ocean currents. To combat the direct rays of the sun, you place the plastic over you. As you drink from the ocean, your tongue swells from the saltwater. Hunger is satisfied with the C rations. You notice a plane flying overhead, so you pour some oil/gas onto the waters and light it. A plane flies overhead during the day, you use your mirror to shine a reflection of the sun to catch their attention.
No matter what you do, you cannot navigate your raft to safe shores. Out of frustration, the sextant is tossed overboard. No one attempts to retrieve it. You have endured many hazards with little harm to your health. One dies of suffocation of their swelled tongue. After days of waiting for rescue, you still have your stamina! You are noticed and rescued! The plane sees the reflected light and identifies you, you have been found!
