Good Day Everyone
While reading United States Coast Guard (USCG); 20130129; COMDTINST M3120.6, Shipboard Launch and Recovery Procedures Manual; Available online at http://www.uscg.mil/directives/cim/3000-3999/CIM_3120_6.pdf
There is a statement “F.1.x The cutter boat [B]shall never be launched with a bow down angle[/B].” to make a statement which I made bold a requirement I do not understand.
Can someone explain to me the reasoning behind this statement and how can it be put into practice?
Thank you for help
I believe I found the answer when I looked at the nest statement
"F.1.y A sea painter shall be used for launch and recovery evolutions when the cutter is making way. While the cutter is not making way, the sea painter is optional. The sea painter shall be attached to the boat’s trailer eye-bolt by means of a pendant connecting the trailer eye-bolt to the sea painter from the cutter. [B]A lanyard should be attached to the pendant and tended from the bow of the cutter boat during launch and recovery operations[/B]."
