Hell, that thing's big enough to re-float the Titanic, or for them to have used it s a buoyancy bag to stay afloat. Post, their "minor" ding, with that pesky berg thing.

The only thing I've heard of that big in terms of bladders, is the tank for the fuel reserves @ McMurdo, down at the S. Pole.

“... a large water bladder approximately “100 feet by 100 feet.” An officer, he said, had stood on it and said that “he felt that if it burst, he’d probably drown...”

Re: Anyone need a big water bladder?

We had one of those in Camp ALi-Al-Salem in Kuwait.
The "swimming pool" was some kind of really huge life raft that was filled with water.

Ah, those were the days, thank God they are over !

Amen to that. Fun times with short periods of sheer terror.
