Life boat brakes

Centrifugal brake

It is fitted so that the speed of lowering doesn't exceed 36m\min . The rotating brake shoes are pressed against the drum when the centrifugal force overcomes the force in the springs.

Hand brake 

A hand brake to winch is released by lifting te lever against a counter weight ( dead man's handle ) so that the lifeboat can be lowered.
