TB: My first wife's family had a 30 foot Dufour which we sailed for 9 great years. Her little brothers loved to play a little game in the summer. When you least expected it, they would jump overboard and yell, "man overboard drill." It always surprised me how quickly you could lose sight of someone in 1-2 foot chop on the Bay. Particularly, when you least expected them to go over and they were not wearing a life jacket. After a pretty good scare on one occasion, we started tossing the white seat cushions and the MOB Pole after her crazy brothers.
