Re: Man over board

She would probably suffocate you or break something dragging you over the gunnel toward a deck winch. A halyard would be a better bet or something fashioned over the boom, swung out over the water.

Your number one priority should be not to ever be able to fall overboard. The odds that she gets back to you and gets you aboard are very slim, even if she's a pro. Tether in.
