You need to be fit for this one.
Jet drive only for that one.
Hang on...
Good idea Chop the MOB's legs off with your prop so there's less weight to lift

It is a recognised technique but you only attempt it with a prop guard fitted and definitely not one to consider unless you have had training. The other technique of the RWC and sled is also very effective.
As Nos 4r2 said chop his legs off less weight in the boat.

a dip but unfortunately we have struggled to find a dry suit for her.
so it has not happend yet.
Now after seeing this post I feel much more confident about recovery.
She obviously would not be able to kick to assist me so legs first is a super idea.
Thankyou very much!!

but of course I would wear a life jacket

Not to knock you back at all with your recovery hopes. But i see you are a pac22 bod.
Just bear in mind those tubes are quite big and sit high when at rest. so may have to try it further aft than normal.
I havnt tried the feet first yet but will try it next time afloat and will let you know how i get on

Weve recovered with the feet first method, and it was a doddle, just a simple pull and in the casualty comes, retrieving from the back would seem a little dangerous in adverse conditions, more chance of injuring yourself on A frame
or knocking your teeth out on the engine cowl. as mentioned this method is suitable for an able boddied recovery, obviously an injured or unconsious person would be different.

There is always some one picking holes in my perfectly good theories.....
Nos4r2, I thought that all my resucs were unlucky cos teh Sharks got the lower half, I always thought that geenie, these fellas are a bit unlucky to have me saving them with Sharks always trailing me and getting them...

Only Joking, though the word Shark will always kill a good laugh....

Yeah.. they were Jet skis come to think of it.. still better half than nothing...

There is a film just out where the plot starts with the kids jumping off side of the yacht an then realising, SHit no one hungout the ladder... I have not sen it but I can imgine.
I am afraid that I am gettingtoo heavy and old for Pull ups. Dont even know if there is a set of steps on my new 6.5 ballsitic.

This is an interesting method of laying somone up in the boat. I havnt got a great experiance with spinal recovery boards, do the hands not go within the straps?

Note: No Lifejackets again "not exactly advertising best practice"

Well, it has happened around here a few times. Not sure of the circumstances (they are diving accidents, after all, which are pretty hard to apply forensics to in any great degree), but of the 9 or so diving fatalities in my area (this year was pretty bad), at least two of them were alive upon resurfacing, but never made it out of the water alive (for the record, most of these were beach dives, among fairly inactive, but certified, divers.)

I remember a movie about the US Navy Seals school using a large horse-collar type loop to do something similar. Boat would fly along at something around 20 mph, bringing the recoveree down the side. A crewmember would hang the horse collar over the side, just clear of the water. The recoveree would stuff an arm through the collar, and as he got yanked, would roll up over the tube into the boat. Not sure how they avoided dislocated shoulders or having the crewmember pulled into the drink, but there you go. Might have had that scene in "G.I. Jane", or it may have been some other movie. Don't recall now.
