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.
