Conjoined Lifeboat / boat

Conjoined Lifeboat
Conjoined Lifeboat

Ocean travel has always been one of the best ways for human beings to explore the world and contact with nature. The complex and changeable weather will lead to shipwreck. In the rescue, the height difference between the ship and the water surface will bring problems to the rescue, which will delay the best time of rescue. The launch of rescue workers has made the rescue more difficult. The conjoined lifeboat is a new type of rescue vessel which can automatically salvage the people in distress. The life-saving board can sink below the water surface and float up through deformation, and the rescue process is safer and more effective.
