Sailing vessels are at risk of accidents due to various factors, internally and externally. The main factors that sink ships are submersion, fire, and overturning. Among these, the overturn accident creates a situation in which people inside the ship are very difficult to escape because the center of gravity of the ship is shaken and the ship begins to sink to one side. In this crisis situation, we introduce the “Golden Time” that can delay the overturning time of the ship and increase the survival rate of the passengers. The purpose of the “Golden Time” is to act as a safety tube. When cruise ships sink because of damages or miscalculation of weight distribution, the ships tend to skew and the passengers get injured before and during the escape. However, by attaching “Golden Time” on cruise ships, passengers have a longer time in evacuating the ships because the product distributes the weight of the ship equally and prevents it from sinking in an unbalanced angle.
