RNLI Atlantic 75 capsize training video

My self and two colleagues attended a training day at the lifeboat college a couple of weeks ago. Here's a little video of the group after us in the pool. (Excuse the commentary by my buddy!)

Impressive. I am wondering why they re-entered the boat via the transom? Is there a very low transom in this type of rib vs the height of the tubes?

They are virtually transomless.... You can fit between those 2 stroke Yams, but the newer 85 has large 4 strokes....bit of a tight squeeze need to come around the side of those

This is the rear of the Atlantic 75 - the 85 with the twin 115's is similar

As Ribochet and Razerbill have just said about it being virtually transomless ,,,,,proper selfbailing at its best

also in a real life capsize ,
a sea anchor /drouge is deployed from a canister fixed up in the bow by means of a toggle operated from the stern ,
crew all muster and then hang on to a rope at the stern as by that time the boats bows should then be pointing bow to the oncomming seas with the action of the drouge also giving a bit of lee protection for the crew ,
one crew member then gives the stainless ring a good tug which operates the self right bag ,,
when the boat rights a hand hold loop/strop thats hanging down from A frame can be used to pull themselves up with .
