Re: Short Handed MOB

Even better, There is a rope at the top of the steps with a one way rope lock on it,
You pull on that rope and the rudder will come up and sit level with the bottom step,
The victim can use that also to pull them selves out of the water or just to use as a support for their body, Instead of a float,
It also locks into the raised position, Thats what the rope lock does,

Here you can see the rudder in the locked up position,

Cheers, Brian,

Re: Short Handed MOB

Lots of great info... I would add trying to stay on the boat by employing the use of safety harnesses ...

Re: Short Handed MOB

Most newer yachts have a bathing platform or similar at the stern like that. However, in any sort of seaway likely to cause a man overboard it’s a really bad idea to attempt rescue from there. The stern is likely to kill your patient as it comes down off a wave. Practice doing it from the beam.

You may have missed that my yacht is a FP Belize (i.e. a 43ft CAT)

Yacht as in Monohull,

Re: Short Handed MOB

I think the largest challenge (among quite a few when it comes to MOB short handed) is securing an unconscious victim to the boat. Short of going over the side to attach a line to them Ive recently been contemplating the potential utility of a Hook&Moor pole for that task.

Its even harder on a cat where the helm may be far from the gunwale and the freeboard is so high. You basically need to drift down on the victim if you want to have a reasonable chance of connecting with them even in good weather.

False distinction. Mono and Multihull sailing vessels are all yachts.


If you meant a monohull yacht, you should have said so.

Having owned an ODay 20... I would not advise doing it.
actually, I was asking in general. We do have an O'day 22, which will be hard to get someone in from out of the water. we have a swim ladder, but if the person isn't able to climb up the ladder.. I would probably use a spare line, and one of the winches.

But, we also charter cats, and those are easier to get the MOB out of the water.. but it's a matter of doing the drill.. and getting safely back to the MOB, without losing sight..

Re: Short Handed MOB

I was trying to find a video made by Jim Duerden from Topcat cruising school as he taught me a very similar technique to the Mediator's. He's on Facebook and probably in here (I can't remember) but definitely a good technique.
