The report which caught my attention this time was about the removed lifebuoys on board several vessels. Simply the Captain on board removed a number of lifebuoys during passage in order not to loose them. Instead of mounting a locking pin, the lifebuoy itself was removed.
This is a sign of poor safety culture and lack of understanding of why some LSA are on board.
Read about this an much more in the MARS report for May 2013.
