For the scenario you draw up, there are ELT's and rafts. A survivable water landing and successful exit has been provided for. Now, is it sufficient to the task? In New York it was, but that was not "out at sea" but on a river in the biggest city in the nation. How many at sea ditchings have happened in the last 40 years that were survivable? What were the cues that got search and rescue teams to the location?
