I think it is manned; I see people on it pretty regularly. I've also seen plenty of boats tie to it without incident including commercial boats so I'd say go ahead.

Sorry, that is wrong. There are 2 employees there at all times. I have a friend who actually worked there.

We got caught up in a nasty little squal at the Petronius 2 Summers ago and I watched 3 boats tie up to the ropes hanging from the rig and ride out the storm while I had to hold behind them and fight the wind and waves with my motors.
