    Good morning TMT Tactical,

    A couple of times here at forum I mentioned I took a course on helicopter evac during a water crash. I only took the classroom portion; could not participate in the actual water evac portion of class. The medical doctor said I was too old with too many injuries ... actually pre-existing conditions ... to evac a submerging helo after impact.

    Everyone can't safely work on an oil rig when time comes vacate premises.

    With the number of past injuries, I think the boat would handle the impact a lot better than me. Shoulders, knees and lower back all have visited the doctors and hospitals a number of times. I would be relegated to the classroom too.

    I imagine they would be strapped in rear-facing cushioned seats that would absorb the impact.

    Dropping lifeboat from that height is not a new thing. This design and drop are not new...they have been around for years.
    The only difference here is the method of propulsion.

    If you are on a ship/SHTF and needing to quickly evacuate, you are not going to be debating whether you can survive the drop. You are going to gratefully take what you can get.....when it gets that bad..and an oil rig is no different.

    Seen plenty of commercial boats entering this shipyard for repairs and with this design and drop in their lifeboats.

    Good afternoon Snyper,

    Thank you.

    It's interesting re "low G-force".

    I took note that no crash helmets worn by crew.
