I actually prefer the "quick stop/heave-to" method of MOB. We've practiced it several times - and if you're quick enough, you can heave-to within 5'-20' of the MOB, then drift right back down to them. It's much, much faster and easier than the old "figure 8".
This forum is frikkin' awesome - I've never even heard of a quick-stop/heave-to MOB maneuver.
I'm going to get me a milk jug and marker some eyeballs on it and call it Bob. I'll see how many times I run over it with the boat before I get it right lol
