The number of people that fit in one lifeboat is different depending on type/modell. Normally purshase is desided upon total numbers that can be onboard. For instance my ship has 6x114 persons lifeboats. This being a merchant ship the lifeboat is smaller.

Imagine in a huge storm trying to even get to the boats, pull the pins, get everyone in, drop down, start engine and get away from sinking vessel.

I came here after watching the life boat escape scene from Alien. Needless to say, today's lifeboats are not designed for hypersleep, pressurization and reentry.

But also if there's a shortage of life boats all the men drown while the women and children live.. Now why is that? I get the whole children thing but why can't women stay behind why does it all have to be men?

Hell fire and buckets of blood....how times change! My first steam ship had 6 open lifeboats, 2 & 1 were adjacent to the officers accommodation and had 3 cylinder Lister engines. 4, 6 & 3, 5 were powered by oars and sails! They were supplied with oil to pour over the bow in story seas which reduces waves inlet over the bow. The first aid kit also contained morphine before it was banned after crews were caught stealing....

question about the radar deflector: once assembled does it have a special elevated mounting/mast to attach to, or do you leave it on the roof?
NiagaraWarrior (27 days ago)
this video is very well done, really top notch quality. from the editing, voice over, and the mild background music, to the video recordings, lifeboat tour, and content display well done. I appreciate the video, i feel i learned something.

Since it has an engine I thought maybe some sort of radio would be on board 🤔

+roger white it was hard to tell seeing how bare bones it was. P.s. are you using your v key as a w key?
roger white (23 hours ago)
+spaz monkey If you vvorked @ a company & somebody told you to build something a certain vvay because International Maritime Lavvs said to do it that vvay you vvould & it vvouldnt matter vvhat country you lived in. The company that makes those life boats makes them so vvell that ships from all around the vvorld use them as they've been proven to be reliable.They include instructions in english & chinese & the ones I savv vvere made in Norvvay & Japan regardless vvhat country makes them they'd be made to International Maritime Standards & they'd be vigorously tested randomly all the time to ensure quality as every year the crevv of the ship have to test the lifeboats & their launching systems to make sure they vvork completely & aftervvard they make sure the batteries are charged & the fuel topped off . Lastly though they dont have a radio they have a radio beacon vvhich rescuers can home in on as it broadcasts on a fequency that is used vvorldvvide for emergencys only. The radio beacon uses a lot less povver than a regular radio & broadcasts 24hrs a day.They'd need both solar panels & a small vvind turbine on a mast to keep up enough electricity to use a regular radio My best friend is a merchant sailor & I've asked him about these things & he's said he'd trust one of those lifeboats completely. & he'd expect to get rescued vv/in 72hrs but they'd be fine @ sea for a vveek if need be .

Very knowledgeable and well explained .
I went on not even a very big cruise ship and those lifeboats could house 100 each. This ship is just a hazard if it only holds 30.
Mikey B (20 days ago)
Just Building In Minecraft there aren't even 30 people on board, and there's a lifeboat on the other side of the ship that has the same capacity.

Caution any marine crew: Be cautious due to a lack of explanation of safety precautions, proper use of Fall Preventer Devices and correct resetting of on-load release systems. See the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjvTojsdsXY Unfortunately, there have been many injuries and even fatalities

In this day of age.. no locator beacons? They are all satellite based, they are inexpensive.. and they give rescuers your GPS coordinates. I would hope most lifeboats - especially ones on this scale - have them.

So you have fishing lines for fishing, but nothing to actually cook it with? Unless you've run out of water and need to survive off of drinking fish blood, that seems rather pointless to me

can a davit lifeboat be lifted back onto the ship it was launched from
Mikey B (20 days ago)
Daniel Holes of course. They have to be launched at least once every so often to prove that they work.

Very interesting to see this video - thank you - I aquire such unique surplus such as these - I have right now 7 lifeboats if anyone has interest! All located in USA.

What if power went out
Mikey B (20 days ago)
Mazen 112806 the lifeboats are gravity launched. It's simply a matter of unsecuring the boat and releasing the brake. Power is only needed to lift the boat back on board, and even then it can be cranked by hand (although that would probably take an hour!).

Sould have solar panels and a watermaker. That way you have a infinite supply of drinking water, and an infinite transmit time for emergency transmit signal thanks to the solar panels. You can survive a long time without food, but not without water.
Mike Williamson (4 months ago)
I hope that jack knife is one you have as a sample, and not the actual issue, because the one you show is literally a $3 import from Pakistan, and not from the custom makers, but from the old mass factories. You buy a case of 20 wholesale and assume 3 will fail to even open properly.
