Prepare to tow or be towed.

We use a Ikaros line thrower by Hansson Pryrotech. Rocket is shot over the ship. You wouldn,t want to be on receiving end of the projectile. The casualties crew retrieves the line and hauls aboard until they get the messenger aboard, then to winches on bow.

This casualty was picked up a week before Christmas, 450 NM east of Cape Hatteras.
