I’m trying to come up with ideas for another book (once I finish this one and the next one I have already planned and intend to write this year) and anyway… I have a couple of characters that are going to get stuck on an island.
So – this is more of an ideas post – I’m wanting to know what you would take as everyday items on a boat that could possibly assist you. My characters will obviously have their mobile phones with them, which won’t get wet because they are going to run aground, and break their hull – so they’ll be able to jump off. But mobile phones aren’t exactly useful tools for survival now, are they? (Apart from phoning for help!) I just can’t decide if they’ll still be able to retrieve a few things from the boat before the tide sweeps it away and sinks it first or not.
I’m wondering if perhaps I should watch or read Robinson Crusoe again?
So – if you were going on a boat trip – with the potential to get stranded on a desert island – what would you take?
