My rib has the hard points for the harness.... I just need the Megayacht with crane.

I can't believe the guy went up with it. A local yacht had a $250K rib destroyed when it fell onto a dock while being hoisted.

Not on the crane... maybe that huge boarding platform. The cranes usually have warnings stating not certified for lifting people... the cables are subject to corrosion which is hidden... cable breaks and you're dead.

The RN also makes you stand in front of people shooting at you.

And still do. Cable is greased well and inspected often. Dont worry about standing infront of guns - due to budget cuts they dont have any that have real rounds in!
