my crew did it on a Sea Rider 4 over the tubes mouth to mouth - whilst I flew the boat up the beach after dragging a dinghy sailor unconscious from water...lucky chap!

We had ambulance arriving as he was carried to road way...so the pros took over ...

We have done it in some very tight places, but not the deck of a RIB.

Resus never takes place like in the training videos, always up a staircase or round the back of somewhere. A RIB would be no different, quality compressions and in the case of drowning 5 rescue breaths before you start.

If single handed or your crew is up to something else and you are the driver in a big sea you could always try the old lifeboat trick of driving and giving the casualty a pump every now and again with your foot in the back
