RIB recovery challenge

OK you lot.
How fast can you recover your boat?
The well oiled Renagade T200 team have got it down to around 2 minutes.
That is from trailer at top of slip to trailer and boat at top of slip.

Could probably beat that... but... I should say my boat is normally lifted by crane

Does a lifeboat count?

approximately 1 minute, although the trailer is left at the bottom of the slip whilst we are out as its a private slipway.

The D-Class you just drive the boat straight onto the trailer, clip on, tilt outboard and lift out 3/4 crew on the boat can do that all at once and start moving it out of the water. (then clean,fuel and ready for service)

the little XP-Class probably takes about 3 minutes, Drive the boat up onto the slipway, tilt engine, get out lift boat further up the slipway from the water, remove the outboard, clean and fuel, put engine in the back of truck, lift boat up on to the top of the truck get it strapped on with the stretcher on and its ready for service.

The time does not include rigging for the road.
A few hints.
1. Make sure the tide is in. That way it is only about 50' to the water.
2. Don't let the crew get out.
3. Only try when it is flat calm.

BTW Launching takes quite a bit longer. Maybe 4 mins.

Let me see now...bear in mind all single handed ( )

1..Park boat on pontoon.....

2..amble up pontoon and have a chat with the chap on the fuel bay. 7mins

3..Amble back past boat and stop to admire the way she sits on the water.
1min
4..Notice the people in the folkboat have arrived back and have a chat to them.... 5mins

5..Amble along the pontoon to the gangway, wait for gate to open, up gangway to car and trailer..... 2mins

6..Realise car keys still in locker on boat...... 1sec

7..Amble back to get keys... 2mins

8..Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5.... 8mins

9..Reverse car to top of slipway and notice the people who arrived 1/2 an hour ago are still there deciding whether to go out or not and making a few phonecalls to people to get weather reports ! (I kid you not).... 10mins

10..Offer assistance to above people ( ).... 5mins

11..Reverse down slipway.... 1min

12..Lock car and walk back up to gangway, down gangway as far as entry code pad.... 2mins

13..Code has been changed, wait for passer by who is 'in the loop' and obtain said code.... 3mins

14..Saunter back to boat (unless other people waiting to use slipway in which case I will upgrade saunter to mosey) 2mins

15..Brief passing chat to persons from 2 and 4... 2mins

16..Boat from pontoon to trailer.... 1min

17..Secure boat... 1min

Robin.

Have you ever noticed how your car and trailer is not quite in the same place as you left it?
Thats because we moved it out of the way and did 26 recoverys before you got got moving.

Don't you just love that 5 mile hike at Northney.
Actually I think I normaly take 57 mins and 14 seconds when I am on my own. Which is most of the time.
