How to recover RIB in chop

I popped down the beach earlier and asked the owner of a local Safety boat service if I could film them recovering there rib, no problem I was told, so for the interest of anyone who's unfamilar with recovering in a chop, these lads show how its done very well.

No wonder that Land Rovers are all rusted out!

I was kind of thinking the same thing. Great recovery but the car did get a bit wet!

They make it look so easy. I can imagine what would happen if I tried that.

Made it look easy but who's maintaining the car ?

I'm obviously doing it all wrong when I manually push my trailer into the water and drag it out with a rope/strap so that I don't get my car wheels wet

Has anybody noticed the shiny showroom condition of tractors left at the coast to launch the fishing boats.. ?

So we can watch a boat drive onto a trailer and then the trailer be pulled out the water... so what? What do they actually do thats any different to what I do every time I put a boat on a trailer (apart from half drowning the car)?

This is an example of the absolute worst way to recover a boat, especially with choppy seas.

For goodness sakes this video isn't aboat being macho, Its aboat real life situations that these lads and I'm sure some others go through every day in the proffessional world, yes its not good for the average vehicle to attempt this without a very good washing down after, which is what these lads do, they must be doing something right they've had that vehicle for over 5yrs. Do you really think the service he provides to oil industry is cheap, this isn't his only vehicle or RIB btw, he's a very experienced and successful businessman, He's also responsible for saving many lives at sea as an ex LB COX. what he don't know about the sea aint worth knowing.

You must be right then, please show me an example of how it should be done, and I shall pass the information on to him, what would he know anyway? probably just a fluke ah! not to worry, I'm sure he'll be delighted to learn how its done properly.
