The inflation, in port, of one of the ship's liferafts.
This should be lowered, unloaded, onto the quay. Training in boarding and using the release hook can be carried out with the liferaft suspended just clear of the quay, or if landing on the quay is not practical, just clear of the embarkation deck following inflation in the overside position. The liferaft should be serviced after the training.
