Recovering a Tethered Man Over Board


S/V Thalia off of Beaufort, NC

I am hesitant about blogging/publishing work that is not my own.  However, we all uncover excellent work by others.  The article on this link is from a British magazine “Practical Boat Owner”.  This article is worth multiple reads. Recovering a tethered man overboard.   Several years back I also read an article that suggested attaching and running the jack lines down the middle of the deck instead of the walk ways.  


  1. I read this article too the other day. It does raise some interesting questions? So am I better off going over the side being unclipped or clipped on? I guess the real idea is to not go over the side at all!
