Lifeboat accident in the making?

Postby JK » Mon Jun 03, 2019 6:20 am

I poked around a bit, but ship info for the cruise industry seems sparse. Are these the 270 person lifeboats that have been allowed by Class for these huge ships? What is concerning is the boat that hauled up on one davit, probably giving it a bit of a torque and overload. So the ship sailed later that day, did anyone calculate the loading I wonder? The wonders of ships...
