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".
