Life Boat Basic Requirment

Lifeboats are important emergency life-saving equipment on board. They are the focus of port state supervision and inspection and domestic safety inspection. The inspection scope of lifeboats covers the whole process of equipment, storage, landing and recovery devices and life-saving exercises. In the 1983 Amendment to the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), it states: “Each crew member shall participate in at least one abandon ship drill and one fire drill per month. Each lifeboat shall be in every 3 months. At least one abandon ship drill was carried out by the specified sailor on board and operated on the water. At the same time, the ship was required to place the lifeboat on the water within 30 minutes.
