PLEASE BE SAFE OUT THERE
GREAT TIME OF YEAR TO HAVE SOME FUN EASY FISHING

BUT LETS BE SAFE

REMEMBER TO PUT SOME RV ANTI FREEZE IN THE BOTTOM OF YOU BOAT BEFORE GOING OUT A BILGE PUMP IS EASILY LOCKED UP BY A SMALL PIECE OF ICE THAT CAN BE IN THE BILGE

IF SOME ONE GOES INTO THE WATER THROW THEM A LINE HAVE THEM TIE IT AROUND THEIR TORSO BEST AND FASTEST WAY TO GET THEM OUT! IS TO SHUT MOTOR OFF GET THEM BHANG THE MOTOR AND TILT IT ALL THE WAY UP DRAG THEM OVER THE MOTOR INTO THE BOAT CALL 911 OR COAST GARDE HAVE THEM MEET YOU AT THE RAMP EVERY MINUTE COUNTS IF SOME GOES IN THIS TIME OF YEAR THEIR WEIGHT EMEDIATLY DOUBLES WITH THE WATER THEIR CLOTHING WILL HOLD. IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES THEIR STRENTH IS GONE AND WONT BE ABLE TO HELP YOU MUCH THERE IS JUST NO WAY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO CLIMB A LADDER

FUN IS OVER IF SOME ONE GETS HURT

Frank,
Getting someone back in the boat using the tilt is interesting, do you have more details on how to do that?

Kill the motor and then have them stand on the lower unit and hang on to the cowl, or if an inboard/outboard, the back of the boat. Then tilt the motor all the way up and have them climb in once it's up far enough. Lot easier for the hydros to lift someone in heavy winter clothing that has absorbed all that water, than trying to have them climb the ladder or lifting them over the side. All depends on boat style, also. This is more for the smaller boats with an I/O or outboard.

Great post Frank. Few things to add about man overboard procedure.

First get the throwable out to them. Do NOT hold onto the rope that is tied to the throwable or you pay throw short or pull it away from them. A line should be attached to the throwable so once they have ahold of it they can release the line for you go get.

Second in waves and/or wind approach from down wind/waves so the boat doesn't go over the top of them. Boats always move faster them a person in the water.

Third get a line to them or toss them a line. Franks idea of them tieing it around them is a really good idea. Loaded down with wet cloths you can and will sink. Happened to a guy last year in a sail boat race. He went over with a inflatable PFD and PFD failed to deploy and he sank down. He was a VERY experienced sailor with a very experienced crew so it can happen to anyone.


Lastly If your boat sinks in cold water there is a slim chance anyone will get to you before you die. A life raft or a unsinkable boat can give you the time you need to come on alive. Cold is really hard on boats and many of the smaller boats have plastic fittings. Nothing special about the plastic they use on boats. Just like any other plastic it gets brittle when its old and cold. Most boats don't sink from weather and waves. Its faulty equipment.
