MOB Recovery

Although demonstrated in benign conditions, this video encourages the immediate deployment of a floating object (life-ring, fender, etc) pre-attached to an aft mooring cleat by at least 30 meters of floating rope (polypropylene, to minimise the risk of a fouled propeller).   A scrambling net attached amidships allows the MOB to climb aboard unaided or to hold on while a halyard is deployed.

The Storm Trysail Club has released a series of tutorial videos for sailors to watch while self-isolating at home:-
