Davit Training
MRC has been conducting training in the operations of the single point davits used to launch RHIBs from ships since 1984, including pioneering procedures for the safe and effective use of Constant Tension Winch davits. We have also been involved in other related tasks including:
  • Creating, writing, and editing manuals for launch and recovery procedures and davit operations
  • Consulting in the choice of the appropriate davit, ship's deck design, and conceptual design prior to construction or installation
  • Troubleshooting and procedural remedies for mechanical defects in existing installations
  • Consultation with davit manufacturers on issues of design and function.
MRC is recognized in the United States and several foreign countries as the preeminent expert in RHIB launch and recovery and davit operations training, and can make important contributions to a safe and effective RHIB davit system from conception to use. Some of the davits and ships with which we have worked are listed below:
