Dude, it's simple, you do a Tibetan Douse followed by a quick Eskimo Roll Tack. Badaboom. Done.

Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

AdamL put up a great video of a boat with an asym up in 28 knots of breeze - going back to snag the skip. Gives you a sense of what it takes...

MOB doing 20 knots in 30 knots + recovery

I can imagine myself having finally gotten around to where the victim fell in, only to hear the click of a beer can being opened behind me, the mob having already chased me down, climbed on board, and gotten into the cooler for a refreshment.

"Dude, let me know when you've rescued me. I'll be over here relaxing."

Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

Well, if I went in I'd be swimming like hell after the boat. Especially if it stopped a few hundred meters in front of me. I'd be in contention for an Olympic record.

Re: Too Much, Too Soon?

Okay - I DID IT!!! FINALLY, FER CRYIN' OUT LOUD!

I now have the heave-to maneuver under my belt. It was easy, now that I'm following proper instructions.

It was crazy windy, overcast, and rough out today on Pensacola Bay, so 'twas perfect for practicing.

Didn't have time to practice MOB cuz it just got way too gnarly and had to motor back in by 2:00pm.

Thanks to everyone who cleared things up for me.
