We have a couple of those cheap throw bag type ropes for recovery of divers or people in the water where close manouvring may be challenging or risky. This does however assume a conscious and co-operative person in the water.

It is also worth mentioning that our pro still spins in neutral due to oil film pick up also if you moving forward but in neutral it will also spin due to water movement, some of divers who see it from under water and break away from being picked up.

Finally casualties legs do drift toward the prop so extreme caution should be excercised as they appear to at the boat and vertical but are actually "sitting up under the boat"

There shouldnt be anyone near it during this procedure. But I do take your point for the ultimate in safety engine off will reduce prop accidents.

If I am leaving the engine running when recovering, then I try to keep the casualty as close to the front of the boat as possible - just a thought that no-one has mentioned in much depth, and maybe ease of recovery closer to the bow is an important thing to think about when buying a boat for diving or sailing centre use ?

Regards the engine off or on, it reminded me from mid 80s till 97 my boats, Ring and Marshan hard boats were rigged by chris Lewis Racing, and they started in gear as it did not break the box on large stainless props, in this manner a box was never broken, and it was fantastic for water sports, down side no other person except the odd mate racer with the same set up could ever drive the boat while I played on whatever toy was in the water
