This is a book describing a survival expedition of two U.S. navy pilots who sailed a rubber raft across the Pacific testing new survival techniques. The story is both a story of adventure, and one giving details of what it takes to survive in the open ocean.The two pilots departed San Francisco with no water and six pounds of food arriving in Hawaii 56 days later. Both had dropped in weight from 186lb to 128lb. It was only at the end of the trip that the Navy acknowledged they were "an official navy project".

George Sigler was an officer and pilot in the U.S. Navy. He served in Vietnam flying the A-3 carrier based jet. He became interested in ocean survival while in the navy, and because of his concern of the number of persons who died at sea, he developed a survival kit. He enlisted the navy's help in doing the medical research, and decided to test the survival kit by sailing across an ocean. Today Mr. Sigler owns a small air carrier which is involved in fire fighting and animal research with the Department of Interior.
