As divers, we were always told to parbuckle a casualty into the boat. I've certainly never tried it but it would be a simple enough thing to attempt if you had to.

As a diver also a few bounces tends to give you the momentum to hall yourself into the boat.

Have you been watching wicked tuna? I might not use a spear to pull a struggling or unconscious casualty into the rib as it might damage the tubes but my boat hook might work ;-)

Try it sometime. It's pretty difficult. (I do like the harpoon method though.)

Someone on here (a long time ago) posted the "get the feet over the tubes, and pull the arms" method, which isn't very pretty, but is actually one of the easier methods of getting a limp form on board. Certainly easier than trying to drag them over horizonatally pulling arms and legs and beltlines.

I was going to kludge up a net and a pole to allow the parbuckle method, but haven't managed to find the ambition and materials at the same time.

Agreed, in addition everyone onboard should have had a quick run through safety procedures to include a man overboard "drill".. Whilst this sounds dull and boring for some it can be made into a bit a fun by using a fender or something for all to enjoy! Everyone gets a drive then too!
