Oooooh yes, very lucky to be alive. I'm glad their rescue technique worked. I was not clear from the video exactly how it was done..... Did not look live heaving to, and providing a lee for the MOB......

Man overboard rescued after 1.5 hours at sea

He was wearing a dry suit, that's what kept him alive

I know some of the DLDD crew I must ask what the retrieval technique is

Wow... nice little wake up call there- thanks for posting. I like the idea of sending a guy up the mast. Though i doubt the guy up the mast liked it too much.

Re: Man overboard rescued after 1.5 hours at sea

That is one lucky person. You can tell how difficult it is to spot someone in the water; just a small yellow "dot". The survival suit saved him.

I guess his tether/harness failed... Did I read that correctly? It wasn't explicit but assumed.

Lucky wearing a dry suit, I find that strange attire , but maybe routine in Pacific

I would not call properly good to a MOB rescue that took one hour and a half, a successful one nevertheless since they picked the guy alive. It was on broad they light (good visibility), they saw the guy went overboard and the conditions were rough but not extreme (35K). If he went overboard in cold waters he would be dead.

I made a post about it and recovery techniques and devices (on my blog).

Re: Man overboard rescued after 1.5 hours at sea

Can you believe 70 foot boats and they dont require a locator on each crew...?

Exactly. AIS-SARTis the way to go these days. But why was the man not clipped on in the first place? Still, great effort.
