They were told that they weren't allowed to wear life jackets or there were none aboard?

I'm fairly confident that they were busy comparing how big their b@lls were by not wearing them. Delighted to be wrong though!

Was that a gibe? Be careful which topics you broach with Willk, once he get a run going he can be hard to stop. Still it mast be difficult being the main protagonist in these threads. Especially if he has to put himself in the bilges!

I'm not sure a single picture is a fair representation. If the engine is now stopped then the transom looks to be the easiest place to recover (just as some people here will use the antiventillation plate as a step or even the powertrim as a lift - on an OFF engine). Even without that the prop on a yacht is usually well forward of the transom (so it washes over the rudder) so whilst it might not be perfect its not like recovering on a small powerboat.

A bit surprised that with presumably loads of manouverable, relatively low freeboard powerboats around the recovery was by yacht.
