A very topical subject

Something to start the ball rolling

What ever technique or recovery procedure you choose the most important part is to practise, practise, practise, practise, practise and then get all your crew to do the same.

As last resort you can let the air out of a tube and float them back in!

markus rescue net, nice bit o kit and lasts for ever, I think ours is on its third boat now. Lives in its own velcroed cover, attached to 3 D rings on the tubes, fit n forget til ya need it. Makes a really good ladder to climb out after waterski-ing too.
Bit expensive I think but ours was a freebie

Thank you
I have used a Jacobs cradle during my FRB training, very easy to use, and did not get much getting used to. Pretty pricey, but if you are doing safety boat work all the time, I would imagine it to be a vital piece of kit. It rolls up and stows neatly after use.

The orange road netting works really well as a recovery method, same idea as the cradle but a damn site cheaper.

There seem to be a lot of people favouring cradles of various designs. How many people have used them in anger with a real casualty with other injuries in cold rough water. Is there a better system that hasn't been produced yet. Some larger vessels have cranes. Would you view these as part of the MOB set up?

I've used lifts as part of rescue training, these work well. If you're looking at a crane then you'd want a basket to float the casualty into, or they can swim if well, and lift up from.

I've again used these in training session - Product: Basket Stretchers | Ferno

There are other makes on the market.
