#55434, "RE: Cranked lifeboat."
In response to In response to 2


This may already be known but in case it is not, Quarter Master Hichens explained why the cutters were swung out when sailing:

"There is one emergency boat on each side of the bridge, just abaft the bridge, which is kept, in case of accident always swung out.... They mustered the men every night at 6 o'clock, in case of emergency, in case they should want the emergency boat on account of a man falling overboard or anything else."
