Incident Information in Loss of Inflatable Liferaft – Failure of Fastening

This incident refers to the loss of an inflatable liferaft. The master of a vessel reported that the fastening for one of the liferafts failed whilst the vessel was in port, allowing the liferaft to roll over the side of the ship. The liferaft container landed between the ship and the wharf causing the liferaft to inflate. The inflatable liferaft was retrieved but the container was lost. Luckily no persons were hit by the raft.
