I've changed the link to a different version of the same. It won't play embedded, but click the link and you can see it on YouTube.

I now view my own amateurish attempts at ribbery in a different light.

RIB Launch gone wrong

Luckily no one was hurt, I think this is a culmination of errors with ultimatley the captain to blame.
I have never seen a RIB launched this way whilst steaming (and at some speed by the looks of it), is this a regular thing, is this something the oil industry does regularly?

They got away lightly with just an icy dip and I suspect minimum damage to the RIB.

I have seen these guys in action against long line fishermen and whalers and I applaud what they do but, this can only be negative publicity for them.

They were lucky that no one was sliced apart when that hoisting cable snapped...
