I am hoping you can help me, I am a Second Officer and have had this dumped in my lap and after an exhaustive Google search and reading up as much as I can I am at a loss.
We have a towing bridle that we wanted to have replaced during our five year underwater survey, however the rig I am on is being stacked and this is no longer an option.
It has been decided to have the towing bridle recertified, the only problem is that no one seems to know if it needs doing and to what extent it needs testing. Does it need full load testing similar to lifeboat davits, or does it need MPI testing.
Could any you help me or point me in the right direction to look.
The rig is flagged in the Bahamas and is classed by DNV.
