Wow, I'm fortunate that I don't have many of the problems that you guys face.
I recently lost a spinnaker overboard, so I went into "MOB Mode" for the first time.
1. My freeboard is manageable, with a gaff we grabbed the spinn, and then I grabbed it with my hands.
2. My GPS is in the cockpit, so the MOB button and position are close at hand.
3. I have a traditional block-n-tackle vang to use as recovery gear.
I plan on chucking one of my kids overboard at the dock, putting the Lifesling on them, and then recovering them with the vang and spinnaker halyard for practice on the "recovery" part of the equation.
