Lifting up people to a sib

Hello all,

I use a folding ladder to get back to my sib after swimming/snorkeling/whatever. It works fine even for elder people.

But sometimes i have thought about lifting up people that cannot use the ladder (such as injured people).

How would you manage that?

If there are two of you on board, parbuckling can be done with a rope.

Parbuckling! Good! Another thing to carry in my sib, parbuckling ropes/stripes.
I have to practise that before having to use it...and of course I hope I never have to.

One other method is to grab the victims feet and pull on board up to the knees (butt will be against the tubes.) Then grab arms and pull. The butt and torso create a fulcrum allowing a fairly easy lift. The one problem is that their head may dunk for a few seconds, but I suspect that's better than remaining in the water. I have successfully done this (practice) solo with an average sized person (not sure I could do this alone with a very large person. They'd have to wait for the Coast Guard to arrive.)

If the victim is in a bad way and has unknown injuries, possibly spinal? It would be better to keep them in the water and radio to get proper medics out with a spine board etc. Rather than tugging and twisting them to get them into the SIB. You could do severe damage.

Every victim should be kept horizontally. Even when taking them aboard/ashore. Reason is that when in cold Water the warm blood from the core would circulate to the extremities, cool down and when returning to the core cause a cardiac arrest.

Evenso when having a spinal injury a straight line of the vertebrae is best but in case of CPR or uncinsciousness don't waste time in struggling to take them aboard or ashore by keeping them straight.

I'm a firefighter/diver with experience in offshore rescue on both P1 and class1 as an intensive care nurse and that 's what we were tought. (Apologies for the language-faults since i'm not used to writing in English.

Is that a question or a statement? I think that sort of decision very much depends on the circumstances you find yourself in.
