    Ha, Ha. A dolly is a very usefull devise. Used by truck drivers for donkeys years. Every dolly you put in the rope, doubles the pulling power. Normaly used to tie things down with.

    OK, so it's a bit like a Yorkie bar, then, or what?

    The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, and is not preceded by a period of worry and doubt.

    ok, but I said no winch or davits, and lets just add, no dinghy. I dont have any on 24ft....Bathing Platform must be 30-40cm above the waterline, the boats rocking about....just how the hell do you do this...?

    Then you need to go shopping and get some safety equipment aboard your boat before going to sea.

    Would snap davits take the stress?

    Errm, yes. We snap ours on while we unload two adults and two kids plus an 8hp outboard while at anchor. Some days at Studland, if the wind/tide is the wrong way, the whole lot can be moving through nearly two feet, and you have to get the timing just right. But snaps are fine.

    Anyway, what would you say to the widow? "Well, we would have picked him up, but I didn't want to risk damaging my snap davits, they're over 200 quid, you know..."

    OK. Are we allowed ropes and the removable back seat?

    Carefully mark the position with both a buoy and on the two GPS units.

    Go back to marina / chandlery, fit power passelle rail.

    Go back to MOB and use above to lift clear of water.

    or just get the person out as best you can, using the practise sessions that you have ALREADY done in good weather as a guide on whats best for your boat and people on board.

    Having thought about this many times I recon you could use either a sheet, table cloth or a bit of canvass, Tie one side onto the back rail of the boat and secure ropes to the other two corner, let this fall in to the water, Roll the body into the sheet against the back of the boat, then secure the other ropes though the rails, pull up on one rope at a time, if you have more than 1 person onboard you could put fenders under the body on the end being lifted and slowly inch the body on board.

    In an emergence if in rough weather or sea conditions you could inflate the life raft, this gives protection to the body and is tow able at a low speed.

    A MOB is ALWAYS a Mayday, unless in a marina or very shallow water.
