as a volunteer watchleader on another brig, this sends shivers down my spine.
thoughts are not only with the family, but also the watchleader and permanent crew into whose care he had been entrusted, and must be feeling awful at the moment, even though in all likelihood it is just one of those devastating accidents with no-one to blame.

Yes,along with a 3 clip safety line ie clip on before you clip off. Lets not try and apportion blame though (not that you were) as anything could have happened. It wouldn't be fair to start speculating.
It's an awful thing to have happened.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

In my day it was a belt with a length of rope and a clip at the end - you could really only clip on once aloft as it would take all day to get up there otherwise - but that was quite a few years ago now!
