this will be my first post, so I will use it to also introduce myself and say thank you for letting me join the forum!
So I have a boat (which is unfortunately not big enough for a helipad).
In summer we are usually anchored at our favorite anchorspot for several weeks and I have to leave several times during that due to work commitments, which is a choppy and long tender commute.
However having a Helicopter with floats, like the R44 clipper would help cut the commute short and make our schedule so much more flexible.
So my Question would be if it is possible to use a helicopter with floats to anchor next to your yacht or tie it up alongside for a few days apiece.
The conditions would be:
-light swell (nothing major)
-water depth between 3-5 meters (anchor could be carried on boat)
What helicopter models should I look at? Which issues do you think would arise? What else should I consider?
Thank you very much for your help!
Looking forward for your input, it will be very much appreciated!
