Patrol Boat - Whaler
On July 16th, during use of the Patrol Boats, the strop eye (top) for the forward sling was seen to be worn out - it has outlived its Safe Working Load life. This strop needs to be replaced as soon as possible as a sudden jerk of the lift-crane or etc. can lead to excessive load on the strop causing it to fail from the shredded eye. This can be fatal if the boat falls on the dock with people around it.
