INTRODUCTION
However well designed and built a ship is, however carefully maintained the equipment is, and however
thoroughly prepared the crew are, emergencies will always happen, Although your best course of action in an
emergency is to stay on ship if you can, it is possible that a serious fire or explosion, a collision, a grounding or
a leak could force you into the survival craft.
And on that day, your life — and other people's — Will depend on your behaviour, skills and qualities, and
those of your fellow seafarers.




Correct procedures for mustering and leaving the ship must be followed
You Will have to be completely familiar with your ship's survival craft and how they should be launched
and boarded, and with the signalling equipment and pyrotechnics
Leadership qualities WII be required, to enable an orderly and efficient evacuation
You must have the ability to stay calm and positive
Warning: If an evacuation should be necessary, do not jump into the Sea except as a last resort, as the
chances of surviving in cold water are very small.
Personal survival, SOLAS and the LSA Code
In the 19th century, all you could do in the event of an emergency at sea was rely on your lifejacket and the
wooden lifeboats, and hope that another ship soon spotted you.
A number of regulations existed, but it was the loss of the White Star liner Titanic that gave the greatest
impetus to the development of international rules governing safety of life at sea. After the 1912 disaster in
which 1,503 people lost their lives, the United Kingdom called maritime nations to a conference to draft a new
International convention for the safety Of Life at sea - the 1914 SOLAS convention.
The SOLAS Convention laid down rules that for the first time were internationally applicable, and although the
treaty has gone through many revisions since then, many of the basic requirernents still stand, including:
• The "fundamental principle" that there should be enough space in the lifeboats for everyone on board
• Lifejackets to be carried for every person on board requirements for embarkation and stowage of lifeboats
and liferafts
• Emergency lighting
• Special duties in an emergency to be allocated to each member of the crew


regular musters of the crews, followed by boat and fire drills
SOLAS is still the most important international on maritime safety. Its Chapter Ill ‘Life-saving appliances and
arrangements' relates closely to personal survival. As it sets out for lifeboats, rescue boats and lifejackets
according to type of ship.
The International Life-saving Appliance (I-SAI Code gives specific technical requirements for life-saving
appliances and is mandatory under SOLAS Regulation 111/34.
A lifeboat can be a life saver if it becomes necessary to abandon ship. But it requires good seamanship skills
to board and launch a lifeboat successfully, often at a considerable height from the sea, especially in severe
weather conditions and at night, and as quickly as possible before the ship sinks.
These skills can only be gained by acquiring knowledge about the techniques and procedures required for
specific types of survival craft, and, most importantly, from hands-on experience acquired through doing
regular drills and, if possible, getting involved in the maintenance of the equipment.
2.1 Types of lifeboat
The types of lifeboat most commonly found on ships are:


davit-launched lifeboats, which are lowered to the waterline and secured to the davits with gripes
when stowed. This type of survival craft may be fully enclosed, partially enclosed, or — increasingly
rarely — open lifeboats.
freefall lifeboats, which are launched from a ramp, without any restraining apparatus, The occupants
are secured by a harness and sit on shock absorbent seats. This type of lifeboat is capable of floating
free if the parent ship should sink.
Familiarise yourself with which type(s) of lifeboat you have on board, and their davit arrangements and type of
release hook mechanisms, by looking at the ship's SOLAS training manual (which can normally be found on
the bridge, in the engine control room and in accommodation areas such as the mess room and/or recreation
room).
Instructions for how to launch the lifeboats will be posted at muster and boarding points.
TRAINER QUESTIONS
What type(s) of lifeboat does the ship have?
Have you consulted the SOLAS training manual to find out how they operate?
2.2 Before you board the lifeboat
Which lifeboat?
Find out which lifeboat you have been assigned to by consulting the Muster List, and/or your Personal Muster
Card. You should also be familiar with your lifeboat from the regular abandon ship drills.
When to board?
No-one should board a lifeboat until the appropriate signal, as indicated on the Muster List, has been received.
(Normally the order to abandon ship is given verbally by the Master or their deputy.)
What if your lifeboat is inaccessible?
If there should be a fire on one side of the ship, or another factor that prevents you from launching your allotted
lifeboat: go to the other side of the ship. Each side's lifeboats WIII be able to cater for the whole crew.
What to check?
Before boarding, check whether the hooks are of the on-load type. If so, are FPDs (Fall Preventer Devices) in
place? If they are not the boat may not be confirmed safe to enter.
What to bring?
Depending on your duties in an emergency, you may have to collect and bring with you the supplies and
equipment that will be needed for the time you will be spending in the lifeboat: radio, extra food and water,
extra cloth 'ng, SART (if it is not already in the lifeboat), and EPIRB.
Remember that nobody is allowed to carry luggage on to a lifeboat. Everyone should be wearing a lifejacket,
but you may have to take it off if there is not enough room to fit everyone in the lifeboat, Immersion suits should
be carried, rather than worn, unless you will be boarding an open lifeboat.

If you work on a ferry or cruise ship, your duty may include assisting passengers to put on their
lifejackets.
Calming nervous passengers by explaining the boarding and launching procedure will help to evacuate the
ship quickly and safely.
TRAINER QUESTIONS


What are your duties in an emergency?
Where are the following emergency items located?
(a) SART
(b) EPIRB
(c) Drinking water and non-perishable food
(d) Flares
2.3 Launching procedure: Fully enclosed lifeboat
Preparing to launch
Once permission to board has been given by the bridge or by the lifeboat crew, the launching procedure can
begin.
1. Check that the water is free of obstacles and/or persons
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Check that the harbour pins, lifeboat gripes and brake lever locking pin have been removed.
Check that FPDs are in place (except in boats with locking devices at the hooks)
Disconnect the power plug from the ship.
Lower the embarkation ladder.
Insert the drain plugs.
Pass the painter out of the forward hatch and secure it, if not already rigged.
Direct the evacuees to their seats and instruct them to strap themselves firmly into their seats. Even
distribution of weight is important,
9. Once everyone is inside, secure the doors and hatches.
10. The person in charge starts the engine.
Lowering the lifeboat into the water
If the lifeboat has to be lowered from on board the ship using the brake release lever, the person who lowered
the boat should then climb down the embarkation ladder to board the lifeboat. This can be an extremely
hazardous operation so you should follow your company's safety procedures carefully.
Alternatively, you can lower the lifeboat from inside the boat. The person in charge pulls on the self-lowering
cable to start the descent and goes on pulling down until it cannot be pulled any further.
The speed of descent will be controlled by the brake control cable on the davit and it can be stopped at any
time by releasing the tension on the cable.
Care with the gripes
People can be injured and the boat damaged if the gripes are fouled during the lowering process, To reduce
the risk of this happening:


clear the auto release gripes manually beforehand
release the gripes and move them clear of the boat before the boat is moved
On-load and off-load release mechanisms
There are two methods of release on lifeboats and rescue boats:
1. 'off-load', which are fixed hook releases that only permit release when the falls are slack, i.e. ‘off load'
2. 'on-load,' when the lifeboat can be released with the load on the hooks.
Safeguards
All on-load release systems must have built in safeguards against early release, ensuring that both falls are
released at the same time There are different types of gear, and your SOLAS training manual will contain a
detailed description of the release mechanism fitted to the survival craft on your ship.
Familiarise yourself with how the release mechanism works
To minimise the risk of accidents, you should carefully read the manufacturer's handbook for:



the correct procedures and operation of the release mechanism, including the procedure for resetting it
after use'
the safety checks that should be carried out
how the rest of the launching equipment works
• Accidents have occurred because the lifeboats' release mechanisms were not properly reset when they were
last used, causing the system to release prematurely during a launch or recovery.
Fall Preventer Devices (FPDs)
The purpose of FPDs is to prevent accidents during launching and recovery that could result from failure with
the hook release system. Often, the devices are in the form of strops or slings. Wires or chains should not be
used as FPDs as they do not absorb shock loads,
It is extremely important that the ship's operating crew should be familiar with the release equipment fitted to
the lifeboat on their ship. Use of these should be as per the company/Master's instructions, and detailed
instructions on FPDs should be as per the company/Master's instructions, and detailed instructions on FPDs
should be available in the ship's SOLAS training manual and/or at the launching stations.
TRAINER QUESTIONS


What FPDs are our lifeboats equipped with?
How do they work?
Launching the fully enclosed lifeboat step by step
1. Halt the lifeboat descent just before it reaches the water and adjust the painter if required,
2. The person in charge should order the removal of the FPDs, just before the boat reaches the water. As
soon as this has been done, the crew member should report back to the person in charge.
3. Lower the boat into the water and release the falls immediately.
4. Put the engine in gear.
5. Turn the lifeboat's rudder away from the ship.
6. Once the boat is at a safe distance, the painter should be released, and the boat manoeuvred away.
2.4 Launching procedure: Partially enclosed lifeboats
Partially enclosed lifeboats have rigid covers over at least 20% of their length at both ends, forming two
shelters. There are folding canopies that two people can erect over the open parts.
The release gear on partially enclosed lifeboats is similar to the type on totally enclosed boats, but, as with all
lifeboats, there are many variations in the system. For example, if your vessel has an extending arm or sliding
beam davits, you will need to remove the sliphook of the gripes and the rest of the securing system before the
operation can begin.
TRAINER QUESTION

If you have a partially enclosed lifeboat, are you familiar with its release system?
1. The winch operator lowers the lifeboat to the embarkation deck where it is securely bowsed alongside.
2. The person in charge and lifeboat crew enter the boat and prepare to board the evacuees.
3. Boarding can begin.

To enable a smooth boarding operation for passengers, the lifeboat party will have opened the ship's
rails and positioned the steps before directing passengers to their seats.
4. The order to launch is given and the boat lowered to the waterline, either by a winch operator or from within
the boat.
5. Once in the water, the person in charge would release the boat from the falls and clear the vessel as in
Section 2.3 above.
• Is the area where the lifeboat will land free of obstacles?
10. If all the answers are affirmative, the release handle can be operated and the lifeboat launched.
TRAINER QUESTIONS


If your ship has freefall lifeboats, are you familiar with the type of safety harness seat belt?
How does it work?
2.6 What to do once the lifeboat is in the water
Getting clear
Getting clear of the stricken ship as fast as possible is now top priority. Judging the safe distance from the ship
is up to the person in charge and depends on prevailing conditions and the type of emergency. A minimum
distance would be a ship's length, but half a mile upwind would be safe in all conditions.
Evacuees must immediately take anti seasickness tablets, as vomiting leads to dehydration.
The person in charge now uses the onboard radio to contact the other survival craft and get them together.
Grouping the craft is important, as they will be more visible to potential rescuers. It also helps to reduce an
sense of isolation.
Activating the detection equipment
Once clear of the ship, the EPIRB (distress beacon) should be activated and secured to the survival craft, and
the SART (rescue transponder) should also be mounted.
This equipment has limited battery life and operation.
Remember: when using a SART, do not use a radar reflector at the same time.
If the lifeboat should roll over
Modern designs of totally enclosed Iifeboats are designed to be self righting in the event of capsizing, and the
occupants will be held secure by their harnesses/restraints.
Everyone should stay strapped into their seats, to minimise the risk of injury.
Extra protection
Some lifeboats have external cooling systems in case of fire, and internal air supplies.
External cooling systems
In a fire, the external cooling system will cover the surface of the boat in water, It must therefore only be
operated with the embarkation hatch closed, so that water cannot get into the lifeboat To activate it, the suction
valve must be opened to allow saltwater into the system.
With a sprinkler system, once the lifeboat is in the water, the spray pump is driven by the engine. However, it is
important to increase the RPM (revolutions per minute) before putting the engine in gear or it may stall
because of the added load of the pump.
The system should always be flushed with fresh water after use in a drill.
Internal air supply
Some lifeboats have an internal air supply which is operated by opening individual air bottles and the main air
manifold. Some lifeboats have an internal air supply which is operated by opening individual air manifold. The
system will supply a constant flow of air for a minimum of 10 minutes — enough to get the lifeboat's occupants
clear of burning oil or other noxious gases and smoke.
TRAINER QUESTIONS


Are the lifeboats on the ship equipped with external cooling systems and/or an internal air supply?
If so, are you familiar with how to use them?
2.7 The importance of leadership
It is the role of the person in charge to take command of the evacuees and their good leadership will be an
important factor in everyone's survival. Bear in mind that if you have passengers in the craft, they may need
extra reassurance — your calm and well rehearsed attitude towards the situation can be a great help.
Key points


Your ship is your best lifeboat — do not leave it unless absolutely necessary and never jump overboard
unless there is no alternative.
Knowing how to operate your ship's Iifeboat systems correctly could save your life and other people's,
so it is strongly recommended to spend time reading your vessel's Muster List and SOLAS Training
Manual.
There is no substitute for hands-on experience, which is why lifeboat drills are so invaluable.
Whatever happens, try to stay calm and focused — this will reassure other people, reduce the likelihood of
making mistakes, and increase the chances of survival for everybody on board.

ship MSC Napoli encountered heavy seas, causing the ship to pitch heavily. The ship was making good a
speed of 1 1 knots and the height of the waves was up to 9m. At about 1 105, the vessel suffered a
catastrophic failure of her hull in way of her engine room. The quickly assessed the seriousness of the situation
and decided to abandon ship.
A distress message was sent via MF DSC at 1125 and the crew started to assemble on the bridge. A few
minutes later, the vessel lost all electrical power. However, lighting was soon restored when the ship's
emergency generator started automatically.
By now, the ship was stopped in the water, with her starboard side exposed to the wind and sea,
Consequently, the Master sent the bosun and three of the crew to prepare the port lifeboat for launch, (It was
evident during the investigation that the master had placed a great deal of emphasis on the importance of
safety drills and the maintenance of lifesaving equipment, and that the preparation and lowering of lifeboats
had been well-practised in accordance with company policy,) Others were sent to the provision locker to get
cases of bottled water.
After all crew had been accounted for, the Master sounded the emergency alarm of seven short, and one long
blast on the ship's whistle to indicate to the crew to make their way to the lifeboat station. He then called
Ushant Traffic on VHF radio to advise that he and his crew were abandoning into the lifeboat. The Master and
third officer were the last to enter the lifeboat, having collected the SART, EPIRB and a number of the ship's
documents. The lifeboat engine had been started and, following verbal confirmation from the chief officer that
all 26 crew members were on board, the
Master ordered the chief engineer to lower the lifeboat by hauling down on the
confirmation from the chief officer that all 26 crew members were on board, the
Master ordered the chief engineer to lower the lifeboat by hauling down on the
rerrnte lowering wire.
The lifeboat smoothly descended the 16 metres to the sea. Once waterborne, the
bosun released the fore and aft falls from inside the lifeboat, However, the crewman
sitting nearest the forward painter release could not pull the release pin sufficiently
far to allow the painter to disengage, He was squeezed between two other crew and
his rnovement was restricted by his immersion suit. The painter was eventually cut by
the chief engineer, who had a knife, and was able to reach the painter via the
lifeboat's forward hatch.
After clearing MSC Napoli, the lifeboat was manoeuvred to a position between 1 and
1 h miles away from the stricken vessel. The master then activated the EPIRB and
the SART.
The rnotion of the lifeboat was violent and the atrnosphere inside was very
unconfortable; all of the crew suffered from sea sickness Although the l'f±oat was
certified to accomrnodate up to 32 persons, the 26 crew wearing immersion suits and
lifejackets were very cramped. They were very warm and several felt faint and
dehydrated. The situation became more tolerable after the crew cut off the gloves

from their immersion suits with the chief engineer's knife. This allowed them to use

their hands more effectivel
and the were able to donk from lastic drinkin water
from their immersion suits with the chief engineer's knife. This allowed them to use
their hands more effectively, and they were able to drink from plastic drinking water
bottles they had brought with thern
On receipt of the "Mayday', CROSS Corsen initiated the assistance of a SAR
helicopter and a tug. When the crew abandoned, Falmouth MRCC was also
requested to assist. Falmouth MRCC activated two SAR helicopters. The first
helicopter arrived at the scene at 1150. Initially, a highline could not be passed to the
lifeboat due to the severe weather conditions. However, at about 1230, a diver was
lowered from the helicopter into the sea and swam to the lifeboat A highline was
rigged and the helicopter crew recovered 13 survivors from the lifeboat. The second
helicopter took over the winching operation at 1325, and by 1409 the remaining 13
survivors had been recovered.

2. MS ESTONIA — a catastrophic chain of events
The incident
The Estonian-flagged ro-ro passenger ferry ESTONIA departed from Tallinn on 27
September 1994 at 1915 hrs for a scheduled voyage to Stockholm. She carned 989
people, 803 of whom were passengers,
The ship left harbour with all four main engines running, Sea conditions along the
Estonian coast were moderate, but became more rough when the ship left the
sheltered waters. The rolling and pitching of the vessel increased gradually, and
some passengers becarne seasick,
During his scheduled round on the car deck the seaman of the watch heard shortly
before 0100 hrs a metallic bang from the bow area as the vessel hit a heavy wave.
Further observations of unusual noise, starting at about 0105 hrs, were made during
the following 10 minutes by many passengers and some crew rrEmbers who were off
duty in their cabins.
At about 0115 hrs the visor separated from the bow and tilted over the stem. The
At about 0115 hrs the visor separated from the bow and tilted over the stem. The
ramp was pulled fully open, allowing large amounts of water to enter the car deck.
Very rapidly the ship took on a heavy starboard list. Passengers started to rush up
the staircases and panic developed at many places. Many passengers were trapped
in their cabins and had no chance of getting out in tirne, Lifejackets were distributed
to those passengers who managed to reach the boat deck. They jumped or were
washed into the sea, Some managed to clirrb into liferafts which had been released
from the vessel. No lifeboats could be launched due to the heavy list.
At about 0120 the alarm was called over the public address system and soon after
this the general lifeboat alarm was given. Two Mayday calls from the ESTONIA were
received at 0122 and 0124 hrs.
The list to starboard increased and water started to enter the accommodation decks.
Flood' ng of the accommodation continued with considerable speed and the starboard
side of the ship was submerged at about 0130 hrs. During the final stage of flooding
the list was more than go degrees. The ship sank rapidly, stern first, and disappeared
from the radar screens of ships in the area at about 0150 hrs.
Witnesses reported various problems with the survival craft: lifeboats irnpossible to
release because the lashings were too rusty and the list was too heavy, inability to
open the liferaft containers, liferafts that inflated and were then blown from the deck
use t as Ings were too rusty an e 1st was too eavy, Ina lty to
open the liferaft containers, liferafts that inflated and were then blown from the deck
into the water, rafts that did not inflate sufficiently, rafts that turned over so that the
occupants fell into the water.
Rescue efforts were initiated by MRCC Turku. About one hour after the ESTONIA
had sunk, four passenger ferries in the vicinity arrived on the scene of the accident
Rescue helicopters were summoned and the first one arrived at 0305 hrs.
During the night and early morning, helicnpters and asSsting ships rescued 138
people, of whom one later died in hospital. During the day and on the two following
days 92 bodies were recovered, Most of the missing persons accompanied the
vessel to the seabed. 852 people died in total.
Conclusions:
2.
Evacu ation
The tirne available for evacuation v.•es very short, between 10 and 20 minutes,
and there was no organised evacuation.
The evacuation was hampered by the rapid increase in the list, by narrow
passages, by transverse staircases, by objects coming loose and by crowding.
About 300 people reached the outer decks. Most victirns remained trapped
inside the vessel.
The lifesaving equiprnent in many cases did not function as intended.
Lifeboats could not be lowered,
The rapid increase in the list contributed to the large loss of life.
The lifeboat alarm was not given until about five minutes after the list
developed, nor was any informat'on given to the passengers over the public
address systern By the time the alarm was given, the list made escaping from
inside the vessel very difficult This together with problems in using lifesaving
equipment contributed to the tragic outcorne.
Rescue operation
The lifesaving equiprnent of vessels participating in the rescue operation
proved unsuitable for rescuing people from the water in the prevailing heavy
esav.ng equprne

rescue ope on
proved unsuitable for rescuing people from the water in the prevailing heavy
weather conditions.
The alarming of helicopters was late.
The helicopters had a key part in the rescue operation by rescuing rmst of the
people who had succeeded in climbing onto liferafts or lifeboats
One rescue man per helicopter was not enough due to the very exhausting
rescue work.
The main reasons for the delay in issuing alarms in general were that the
distress traffic was conducted separately from MRCC Turku, and that there
was only one person on duty at MRCC Turku, at MRCC Helsinki and at
Helsinki Radio, respectively.
In the Finnish MRCCs the instructions regarding distress traffic were
inadequate.

3. Lifeboat hoisting incident
A vessel was secured alongside, waiting to resurne unloading her cargo. At about
1515, the crew members carried out a rrnnthly abandon ship drill, which on this
occasion involved launching the starboard lifeboat and checking the engine.
occasion involved launching the starboard lifeboat and checking the engine.
The totally enclosed lifeboat accordingly was lowered to the boat deck and six crew
members went on board. The davit winch brake was released and the lifeboat
lowered into the water, The srnall safety pin was withdrawn from the housing of the
control lever at the steering statiorL Then the remote control lever was pulled to
disengage the stud from the groove in the housing. The lever was moved from the
vertical position to the horizontal to open the on-load release hooks; the davit falls
were disengaged and the crew members made a run in the harbour.
At about 1600, the lifeboat was manoeuvred alongside the starboard side of the
vessel off the davits. The long links of the falls were engaged in the on-load release
hooks, and the remote control lever was brought to the vertical position with some
difficulty The lifeboat was raised 30 to 40 cm above the water surface, but because
the forward hook did not lock, the lifeboat was again lowered into the water.
To make certain that the long link rernained engaged in the forward hook, tension
was maintained on the forward fall and the lever was again from the
horizontal position to the vertical. The hooks seemed to have locked and the lifeboat
was hoisted to the level of the boat deck. Two crew tæmbers disentarked_ While the
lifeboat was hanging approximately 8.3 rn above the water, the long link becarne
disengaged from the forward hook With the after hook still locked, the lifeboat tipped
forward. The transom and part of the structure holding the after hook separated from
the forward part of the lifeboat, and the boat fell to the water. The after hook
rernained hanging from the after fall, with the safety pin inserted in the hook.
Two of the four crew æmbers who were on board, and who were not wearing hard
hats, suffered head and other injuries. Another crew member broke his ribs, and the
fourth suffered neck and leg injuries.
Analysis
On the first attempt, the crew had difficulty moving the lever to the vertical position.
They thought that to arm the hydrostatic hook release mechanism, they only had to
move the lever to the vertical position and engage the stud in the groove of the
Analysis
On the first attempt, the crew had difficulty moving the lever to the vertical position.
They thought that to arm the hydrostatic hook release mechanism, they only had to
move the lever to the vertical position and engage the stud in the groove of the
housing. On the second attempt, the crew concentrated on properly engaging the
long links of the falls in the hooks. The interlock device was not examined. Thinking
they had cocked the interlock device because the lever was in the vertical position
and the hook was engaged, the crew hoisted the lifeboat The safety pin of the
forward hook had not been replaced before the drill. Thus, the hook was engaged
only by the interlock device The presence of corrosion in the cable housing and the
breaking of the metal cable hampered the cocking of the interlock device. Since the
hook was not damaged, evidence indicates that the forward hook must have
released from the interlock device. The force of gravity exerted by the hook on the
partially cocked interlock device caused it to tip down. The hook pivoted, and the long
link of the forward fall released from the hook.
Findings
1. The monthly inspection did not include checking the hydrostatic hook release

2. The interlock device was not completely cocked before the lifeboat was
hoisted back on board.
3. The forward hook released during the lifeboat hoisting manoeuvre, causing
the after hook to give way and resulting in the uncontrolled fall of the lifeboat.
4, The crew members who nere not wearing their hard hats suffered head
injuries.
The crew did not take all necessary actions to arm the hydrostatic hook release
mechanism before hoisting the lifeboat back on board. The monthly inspection did
not include checking the hydrostatic hook release mechanism. Thus, a safety pin was
not replaced before the rmnthly abandon ship drill.

Editor's note: This report pre-dated the introduction of FPD advice from IMO (MSC
Circ, 1327), and if FPDs had been in use the accident would not have happened. In
this case both pins together would be deemed an FPD. One alone is not so
because the system is dependent on both falls.
4. Rescue boat accidents
1. A vessel was lifting the six-man glass reinforced plastic rescue boat aboard as
part of the routine training exercise, with two persons aboard, when one of the
eyes for the four leg lifting bridle pulled out of the hull of the boat which was
suspended approximately 0.5 rn above the water. The boat was quickly returned
to the water and to an upright postion afloat. Although shaken by the experience,
no staff were injured or fell out of the boat.
The bridle is designed so that two larger legs are attached fore and aft and take
rmst of the weight, with two smaller legs to stabilise port and starboard
A contributory cause to the failure, in addition to poor boat design: was found to
be that the lifting bridle was attached to the davit incorrectly. Consequently the
largernonger fore and aft legs being the outer pair munted on the master link, the
shorter port and starboard stabilising legs were outside the fore and aft legs

shorter port and starboard stabilising legs were outside the fore and aft legs
rreking them shorter still and then taking extra strain for which they were not
designed, It is important that, when using multiple leg lifting bridle, it is attached
correctly.
A large cargo vessel vas at anchor. The opportunity was taken to carry out a drill
of the vessel's rescue boat. The boat is an open dory, made of glass reinforced
plastic For lifting, it has three eye-plates, one forward, and one each side at the
after end. Each eye-plate is bolted to the hull with four bolts. The heads of the
bolts are visible but not the shanks and nuts. The boat is lifted by a single arm
davit, with a three-part wire bridle, with one part to each of the eye plates.
The boat crew on board were wearing boiler suit, safety boots, helmet and a
lifejacket The boat was swung out with the four crew members on board. As
lowering commenced, the eye-plates on the port side aft suddenly detached from
the hull. The boat was left hanging starboard side up, Three of the boat's crew
plummeted into the sea, a distance of approximately 12 m. The officer in charge
of the boat was left hanging on. Having ascertained that the officer was able to

remain secure, the boat was lowered to the veter and the three crew members
were recovered, fortunately without long-term injury.
