Default What Would Capt. Jim Do?

What would Capt Jim do if he were trying to build boats today with all the govt. regulations? Looking at the picture he took of the INDIANA outfitting there are all kinds of safety violations which would have shut him down if an OSHA inspector had happened by back in 1901.
1. man working on the jack staff. No safety harness, sitting on guy wires...oh my, the man was lucky to have made it through the day.
2. man working under the stairs. No hand rails and he's working over water, no life jacket. No guard on the stairs to keep people off.
3. stair way from the Texas to the Hurricane roof. No hand rails of any kind and at the end to the stairs there's a fire hose pipe, someone could fall into it.
(I love these Howard photos, they are so clear you can enlarge them so big that details like these become evident.)
