Re: Man overboard drill
Biggest challenge is actually doing it. With a person, not a hat and not a cushion.
Try it at the dock.
Try it in dead calm water
Try it underway.
If you have a good strong crew and a conscious healthy mob - might work.
If there are just two of you and you have any conditions and the mob is not conscious - best of luck.
There are just the two of us - our rule is "mob is a dead person - so stay on board".
