The way it reads was he was with owners after installing new electronics and doing trial run when squall came through. Not sure how much experience owners had. Lucky man.

And the crew could not execute an MOB procedure?

I teach 4 different methods; two under sail (upwind and downwind), two under power (Anderson turn and Williamson turn) at the competent crew level.

I always wear an inflatable pfd underway.

Life jackets are no guarantee of survival, although they greatly inhance it. I wonder why more people don't use jack-lines/harnesses when at sea during unsettled weather? My back is still sore from "coding" a drowning victim in Lake St. Clair (little more than a duck pond) who was wearing her jacket ,allbeit poorly.

Nope no lifejacket, just go overboard with a cooler.

BTW have you tried to swim in a lifejacket?
