Wow, over 25 of us came together for a valuable experience – learning what it takes to get someone back on board after they’ve fallen in the water. This experience got us all thinking about how to prepare ourselves and our boats. Vivian started the evening with a video followed by a lively discussion and topped of by hands-on demos of life saving approaches. She bought her Pully system (see pics) She’d found it on the Internet for about $30. It is a 5 to 1 ratio making it surprisingly easy to hoist.
Top piece of trivia from the evening: Studies have shown that a large majority of overboards occur when a man on board decides to take a whiz off the side of the boat.
