I know on larger yachts, helipads are common and I know many owners who use helicopters extensively to and from boats. I guess I'd like to hear from those who either do now or have crewed in some way for owners who used them, and some of the circumstances and benefits. Questions like how far from a port was the boat? How far would the boat have needed to alter course to pick them up or drop them on land? What would have been the alternative if no pad on the boat? Really just trying to understand the use and the benefit vs. the risks involved as well as the space sacrificed on the boat.
