New Podcast – The Case of the Fall From Grace

This week sees the IMOs subcommittee on ship design and engineering meet in Bonn. High on the agenda will be the appalling record of lifeboat safety over the past two decades, so its an appropriate moment to launch the third MAC lifeboat safety episode, The Case Of The Fall From Grace.

Based on the Lowlands Grace incident in Australia . The Case of the Fall From Grace explored how and why two men died and three were injured thanks both to bad maintenance, an out of spec suspension link and, possibly, a poorly design on-load release hook.
