Abstract
Totally-enclosed motor-propelled survival craft (TEMPSC) are used to evacuate the crews of mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs) in emergencies. The small size and other provocative circumstances almost guarantee that all or most of the occupants will become seasick. Recommendations are made to improve the well-being of occupants in terms of reducing seasickness, dehydration, hypothermia, anxiety and the other factors that contribute to loss of comfort and the will to survive.
