Re: Man over board

I'm a fan of the Spinlock deckvest, which has a integrated tether harness, leg straps, spray hood, whistle, strobe, maybe more I'm not thinking of. If you got a halyard on the harness loop, im sure you could hoist someone out of the water. Getting it on is another trick, if the victim is unresponsive. They never got their USCG cert in the US, but are common in Europe (where rules are often more stringent). No self inflating PDF legally counts as available device unless worn.

The more important issue is what is comfortable enough to the individual that they will actually wear it.
