Canada, Zodiacs on TV tonight

FWIW, Tonight on CBC Rick Mercer will be airing a segment about the Coast Guard RIB piloting school.

I don't get CBC here unless there's a hockey game on. And since there's no hockey...

The show is called Rick Mercer Report.
It should be streaming on the CBC website soon.

Thanks for the cue, I'll have a look at CBC stream tonight.

Does anyone know of a how-to video or something to do that trick with the rope they used to roll him back in the boat?

Was thinking about keeping a net of webbing with attachments for exactly that, until I saw the price of webbing nets (might have to make my own if I ever get a HD sewing machine.)

Most cases, you can get a person's feet and calves up over the tubes, and lever them over by pulling their arms. Much easier than a straight pull out from alongside the boat.

Might be worth checking out webbing replacements for tailgates or pickup box cover webs from surplus outfits such as Harbour Freight (similar to our Princes Auto in Canada)
