MOB Recovery Techniques for RIBs

Hi there

Can anyone share there experience of real life MOB Recovery?

I am aware of the Corkscrew recovery, but a 300lb unconsious deadweight?

There is also the Feet first recovery, but I am not sure about that either.

I really mean MOB in very rough weather, possibly an unconsious casualty.

Not sunny days at the seaside!

Cheers - JD

The RNLI who recover more than their fair share of MOB seem to use brute strength rather than any specific technique. This is only from watching Saving Lives at Sea. Whilst their bigger boats are equipped with MOB rescue gear, there probably isn't the space to fit it on the smaller boats.

Having had to pull a person in boat who jamp off a 150ft bridge in front of my rib Iíd say itís surprising what Adrenalin will do. I nearly threw him back out over other side. He was an average weight/ height man and conditions were fair but he was unconscious. It didnít end well unfortunately very few have survived that jump. Most mobs are more likely to be conscious of course so an emergency boarding ladder would assist.

Back against the sponson and, if you have two people onboard, lift from under the casualties arms. I suppose you could let some air out of a section of the tube if struggling.

We use the parbuckle technique using webbing. It works well but requires some practice.

If you are familiar with rescue tubes, one of those around the casualty, rescuer can then do a small dunk and pull them up over the sponson, back to sponson as mentioned. I’ve seen plenty slight women pull out chunky blokes with that technique.

Are we taking dead weight casualties or conscious?

I have used a sling before, which seems tobe like a rescue tube.

Both dead weight casualties and conscious ones...

Thanks

JD

Andrei - what is the parbuckle technique?

Jeff - thanks for picture. This is brilliant. It's like this https://www.jasonscradle.co.uk but a damn sight cheaper!

That's it - good for large vessels, no good for ribs or sports boats. Expensive and heavy.

the reason we like these is if a diver is pulled in his kit doesn't get tangled up like in the mesh type dont know if thats a need for you
