Re: Kid overboad plan

I realize we are or were talking about an overboard situation, but I would think the OP should be concentrating on making sure the child does not go overboard to begin with.
I have seen child harnesses advertised recently, if the child is too small for a harness than maybe a simple line through their PFD, make sure the pfd has crotch straps for a child, safety netting between life lines and toe rail... etc.

If you do have an overboard, maybe trailing a 100' polypropylene would help,
