Does anyone have experience of transferring crew (some or all or injured) from a sailboat to a ship in bad conditions? I've seen a video of someone abandoning their yacht by coming alongside a huge car carrier and climbing off onto a ladder. The mast
was banging hard against the the side of the ship as the boat rolled next to the ship and I'm sure that would have damaged the rig beyond repair? Is there a recommended way to do it that does not wreck the boat eg stern to, to keep the mast
away from the side of the ship , or using a liferaft
to get from the boat to the ship?
