Questionnaire - Horizontal Rescue - Single Vessel

Posted in Horizontal Rescue


The combination 'mother ship with daughter boat' is widely used in the world of professional maritime rescue services.

However, this questionnaire also covers small commercial vessels (such as fishing boats, crew transfer vessels, tug boats and pilot boats), which in many cases are equipped with a fast rescue craft.

Usually the tasks of such fast rescue craft are identical to those of the daughter boats. Thus the term 'daughter boat' in this questionnaire includes 'fast rescue craft'.

In questions 24 to 27 explicit reference is made to both, the daughter boat and the fast rescue craft.

The term 'vessel' includes mother ships, daughter boats and fast rescue craft.

This Questionnaire is for cases involving only one rescue vessel. For cases involving Mother Ship/Daughter Boat combinations, please go to "Questionnaire - Horizontal Rescue - Mother Ship with Daughter Boat/Fast Rescue Craft".
