Bit of a long story how we came to get the net, but by looking at their website they are in to bigger vessel rescue systems in the main. Their web address ishttp://www.markusnet.com/product.htm
Main man is an Icelandic guy Petur Peturson who lives in Glasgow-so thats two accents to sort out if you talk to him! Best to e mail him from the site and mention that it is the one we have on our boat.
Really good bit of kit, but not cheap. Stows away in its own velcroed bag out ouf the way between tube and deck so that you forget its there-til you need it! You have to supply your own blonde to practise with!

Isn't the technique called "parbuckling" and wasn't it used by the old drayman (spl?) to lower and raise the old wooden beer kegs in and out of cellars?...... funny how most of my usless facts are alcohol related.. or is that alcohol fueled...

yes parbuckling with a couple of ropes is something we used to teach on BSAC courses and still do have a go when we have lifeguards on courses who may have to deal with overweight, very wet holiday makers, but it does mean you have to find the ropes in a hurry and then think about tying them on somewhere which is a bit of a trial if you are alone on board and need to hold onto the casualty at the same time. Lot cheaper than the net though! Talking of the overweight they sling the net over the side so that this particulary decrepid old water skier can use it to climb back in the boat while the crew laugh at him

Thanks guys. Lots of interesting ideas there. Will add them to the list.
Some we can't quite do. Of the three boats/groups of friends who have agreed to participate:
(I) have a 3.5 ton 9.5m boat
Another has a 5 ton 9m boat and the other
has an 6 ton boat of 11m
so I dont think we will be doing much slipway work!

Out of interest........
we all have Yanmar 300s (the 6 tonner has two of them)
we all have Raytheon colour plotters with combined radar
we all have donkey engines and sibs
(Daniel-mine is a 6hp Selva Long Shaft, fits on a special section of the bathing platform. And no, I have never tried it out and I dont hold out much hope for it doing much that is useful either)

The recovery from man overboard sounds interesting though. And as for a volunteer, where is Keith Hart when you most need him?

Also as I do a lot of single handed cruising, it will be a smart idea for me to try a bunch of this stuff unassisted.

Thanks to all for your good ideas. Keep 'em coming if you can think of any more.

parbuckling

I've seen a similar technique used in mountain rescue using one of the thicker exposure bags. Being a yorkshire man at heart would prefer to try and save money where possible.

Does any one think this is feasible on the boat or would the water collecting on the bag cause too much of a problem ? (heavier to pull and potentially water in boat !)

I'll give it a try sometime (when a bit warmer).

Cheers

Mike
