From Insjö

There are eleven reports on FRBs (fast rescue-boats) at Insjö. Five of these are the result of engine problems. Several can be categorised under poor service and maintenance, such as one where the engine compartment was filled with water due to a defective seal, and several others that needed fuel filters changing, amongst other things. Two had manoeuvring problems (one had a broken control line to the scoop so the boat could not reverse, another was difficult to steer).

There are eleven reports on FRBs (fast rescue-boats) at Insjö. Five of these are the result of engine problems. Several can be categorised under poor service and maintenance, such as one where the engine compartment was filled with water due to a defective seal, and several others that needed fuel filters changing, amongst other things. Two had manoeuvring problems (one had a broken control line to the scoop so the boat could not reverse, another was difficult to steer).
Three incidents in conjunction with launching the boats could be categorised as serious. In one case the boat fell into the water when it got stuck on one of the rubber strips it was resting on. The cable slackened and the hook disengaged. There were three men onboard. One jumped back onto the ship, the second was left hanging on a safety line and the third released his safety line and jumped into the water. Since then the hook has been replaced with a safer model.
The other two incidents took place when the boat was launched while the ship was at speed. In one case the hook pin could not be released before the painter was pulled out. The boat jibed and was dragged along sideways behind the ship until it was stopped from the bridge. In the second case the connecting line be­tween the hook and the painter got stuck in the boat after it was cleared. The boat was dragged along and turned over. Both of these incidents resulted in the boats being at least partially filled with water.
