mob drills

in real life it is very difficult to get a 170ld man let alone a 200lb man over the tubes and out of the water on your own. i have seen many fit men fail to do so .there is a device on the market called a sea scooper.com which goes under the man you then roll him into the rib over the tubes .it does work see demo

Remember a couple of years ago, someone on here had a video of a RIB crew recovering someone by getting their feet over the tubes, then levering their body up and in by the arms using their butt as a fulcrum. Doesn't look pretty, but it does work: I tried it with an (admittedly conscious and mobile) diver one day; much easier than trying to haul them in from a parallel to the keel position.

Helps to have a couple of people (mainly to keep their head from sinking), but if it's a life or death type situation, I'd guess that any way to get them aboard would be better than none.

If you have two people you should be able to pull them in head first.
Wouldn't fancy grabbing hold of someones legs and then dunking their head, sounds like the recipe for a kick in the face?

The 150 doesn't have a strong pee stream it is more of an incontinent dribble which runs down the back of the engine (high volume, low pressure) but I'm told that is normal. The 90 deg V6s like yours are different. Stupid design on the 150s, because you can't see it unless you go hard over and lean over to look.

The dribble is OK when I can just start to hear the exhaust burble at the surface which means the top of the prop is about level with the surface. That's enough for a good shower of kelp I haven't tried it higher than that. The other thing about trimming right out (in fact well into the "tilt" range rather than "trim") is that kelp tends to slide off the leg rather than hooking around it, it's a technique I perfected with the old Johnson, and it means the water intake does not get obstructed by kelp wrapped around the leg. Downside is you get eff all thrust in reverse.

As for drifting on to a MOB, when you are parked in kelp that you could bloody near walk on if you were wearing snow shoes, you don't drift anywhere

From experience, I can recommend having a donegaldan onboard - better than a HIAB

I have found that if you loudly shout 'SHARK', the MOB will get in the boat pretty quickly and unassisted.

"Pubs open" works well too, or "if you don't hurry up we're leaving you."

Well, for me, I don't always have 2 people in the boat.

Depends on how active they are, I suppose.
