And remember every MOB is a Mayday according to the RYA & its instructor base - I remember arguing this long and hard with my PB2 instructor getting the response "there's always the risk of secondary drowning". Following that logic it would be a Mayday every time one of the pups fell off the ringo!

I think with 2 other boats & experienced crews so close and such a well executed recovery this did not need a pan-pan/ mayday, but official line might be different . I'm sure there will be an argument that a mayday should have been made, then stood down as best practice.

It was a good piece of seamanship to recover Flipper so quickly and right the SR. Nice to watch

I don't think that the CG, RNLI, RN or any other professional maritime body would see it that way.

There's a difference between fun, adventure and measured thrill seeking. That was irresponsible, wreckless and just dumb.

I meant in relation to the ribbing he took after rather than the event.

Love to know which bit was reckless? Going to sea with a evinrude? Or the coils gettting wet and creating a missfire in a following sea. Of course its never happened to anybody ever has it! Doh!
