Super quick evolution. After the river-left crew paddled (ferry angle) across the river to get to the victim, the river right crews started with the getting the Sterling water line across by using the Rescue Max and having the pilot line tied to the main line. A change of direction (CD) pulley and progress capture were employed at a high point to create a ferry angle point using the moving water as force to create the vector line (resultant) and allow the rescuer and victim safe passage back to river right.
In this second video, two rescuers ferry across the river prepped and ready to receive the line-shot from the Rescue Max. Rescuer enters the water with the far bank hauling the near band (river right) giving slack. Anchor are established on both sides of the river (2 points) with the third assist (throw bag) to complete the crossing of the rescuer in the boat. Victim is brought into the boat and slack is given in opposite order with river right now hauling. In the early stages of the crossing the river flow is used to “ferry” the boat into position for an easier haul “up river”.
