Ha you spotted it, they do have a painter line but there's no tension on it at all. Probably because it's held in the hands of one of the deck crew. The painter should be taut and belayed onto the ship well fwd of the rib, the crane driver should be keeping tension on the painter while keeping the boat snugged in tight to the ship at the same time, not letting it swing out like it does.
That is actually a quick release hook on the wire but no one pulled it.

No bow line for starters, and quick release hoist cable.
