Inside a lifeboat

The life boats are tested once a year which involves lowering them to the water and then driving them a distance from the platform to test the engines. Apparently they move very slowly so it takes a while to move any distance. Each life boat can hold 89 people. this photo shows the driver.

All of the photos from here on were generously provided by Ross Moriarty, my primary point of contact on the platform.
