    One wonders if this would be allowed under Health & Safety in 2012 - Waverley coming alongside Shieldhall off the Isle of Wight in September, 1994 to effect a scheduled passenger transfer offshore. This was I think the third attempt, and the one that proved successful.

Both vessels should be properly equipped and/or modified to allow the boarding to be undertaken without unnecessary risk. A proper embarkation point should be provided, and the boarding procedure clearly agreed. The relative movements of both vessels in any seaway and varying sea, tide and swell conditions make the judgement of when to effect a transfer crucial. The
    Master responsible for the transfer operation should have full sight of the area of transfer and he, and at least one designated crew member should be able to communicate at all times with the crew member making the transfer.
    It is recommended that vessels undertaking ship to ship transfers while underway, should carry equipment designed to aid in the rapid recovery of a casualty from the waters.
    It doesn't address the specifics of transferring between two vessels tied together securely, but where that is the case an activity should be risk-assessed and appropriate precautions taken; in this case that would be(IMO) only proceed in calm weather and with no traffic nearby, securely moored to each other, the gangway secured and supervised, and at least one rescue boat prepared for rapid launch.
