TEMSC on large passenger ship do not put out painters. On older passenger ships with open boats, only one painter is run out, one on each side for the most forward boat, usually the 'emergency boat'. The rest of the boats have to fend for themselves. Very unlikely any passenger ship would be trying to evacuate passengers would make any headway.
