'Slow changes in hooks for fast rescue boats'
"According to current SOLAS regulations, when it comes to ships, fast rescue
boats (FRBs) are only required to be carried onboard ro-ro passenger ships, stipulating
that one of the vessel's the rescue boats should be an FRB - ie 'fast'. But launching
an FRB can be a problem and Dean Pelley, CEO of marine evacuation product developer,
Mad Rock, told SASI that the problems related to getting the FRB down to the water
are the same as those involved when launching davit/winch lifeboats."
