Episode Summary

Life At Sea
Your ship is rapidly sinking, a storm is raging, it’s freezing outside, sharks are circling. That small open-top lifeboat does not look very appealing. What would you do? Try escaping via the Davis Life Pod. Patented in 1913, on the heels of the Titanic disaster, it was designed to deal with all the problems listed above. But does it? Join Matt and Jeremy as they build one of these 400 pound sardine cans and see if Davis’ idea floats. Will the Re-Inventors be saved or perish in a watery grave, nicely preserved in a coffin-like container?moreless
