Man over board

I've been asked to see if theres anyway I can improve our man over board recovery systems the only thing that seems apparent is that when we go to use the rescue slings we use both the 'matesaver' and the 'SB Rescue sling' they can be very time consuming and awkward to use it's like a bad game of hook a duck! Of course if this was going to happen it would be at night and blowing its tits off so trying to hook the casualty would be even harder, so I was wondering if anyone out there had experience of any alternative systems?

Cheers Gaz

HI gaz it was me that found the washed up lifebelt from the pilot cutter near the lighthouse at south gare , alls well that ends well ,but you had a close call that early morning ,the rnli system of an A frame and sling or a parbuckle rig is ok if you have 5 or 6 crew on board and a low deck ,but i have seen a pilot boat which has a sling that can be operated with one man as long as you can get to him in the first place and he can help himself ,these systems might be ok when under test or in the confines of a harbour but when its a force 9 gale ,2 am in the morning , miles out at sea ,pitch black ,snowing and your at 15 knots with a ship a couple of feet at the side of you im not too sure , PS did he ever get his cap back ,kindest regards mart

Are you on about the Tees Pilot that went splash?
Gaz works up at Seaham.

You might be best having a word with the lads at Hartlepool Lifeboat, I'm sure they'd explain and show you how their gear works. I know we would.

Hey Mart,

Sorry wrong Gaz but totally agree with you here,

these systems might be ok when under test or in the confines of a harbour but when its a force 9 gale ,2 am in the morning , miles out at sea ,pitch black ,snowing and your at 15 knots with a ship a couple of feet at the side of you im not too sure , PS did he ever get his cap back ,kindest regards mart [/QUOTE]

Hey Chewy

Whats the minimum amount of crew used on the RNLI's system when recovering the man out of the water? Only have to do all this cos someone from Sunderlands boat went in.

Cheers Gaz

It's been rough for sure but a big bonus was abandoning manning on a wind tower.
