Trouble is if your does quit the survival rate over land is probably well above 50%, whereas that over the sea is not much above 0%.

It's rather higher than 0% - perhaps not in a storm whilst flying the Atlantic. But in uk coastal waters with a lifejacket, plb and liferaft/dry suit your chanced are reasonable.
