Pretty scary lifeboat picture

My colleague in the blogosphere, Fred Fry has a pretty scary lifeboat pic which pretty much says what needs to be said about relegating current lifeboat designs to history. Lowering a lifeboat that far under real conditions of evacuation hardly bears thinking about.

Sadly, we don’t have to imagine it. In ‘The Case Of The Errant Hookers‘  four seafarers died trying to evacuate a ship in a twin-fall lifeboat in bad weather.
