Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

"So how do you guys do MOB recovery while flying a spinnaker? "
What, you've never seen a SEAL team do a high speed recovery from a RIB? You zoom past the MOB while extending a line or ring, they get one chance to grab ahold and swing up. If they miss it, they can swim home.
Good enough for gummint work, right? :-)
