Ever had to make the choice between ropes, etc. and utilizing a readily available on site crane or lift platform?

Comment by Wayne Benner Jr (Casper) just now Delete Comment Last year we had to use a crane on board a Laker (SHIP). We had a worker who broke his leg and was in the Engine Room. If you have been on a Ship you would know that the stairs/ ladders are no good for Pt transport. Needless to say we used the crane to hual the PT up in our basket but used ropes as a backup. Should not have used the crane except for maybe the anchor point but we did it anyway. Then we had to rig up a haul system for the second level then used our Ladder to get him to the main land
