The Final Report

The Coast Guard has released the Woods report. A local NH channel broke the story...

An excerpt:

As waves tossed the 55-year-old lawyer from side to side, 20-year-old Asher Woods tried unsuccessfully to change course and then to start the 41-foot Naobi's diesel engine, Foster's Daily Democrat reported Friday. When those attempts failed, he released the lifeboat in hopes his father could grab onto it, but his father disappeared, the newspaper reported based on an all-but-final report it obtained Thursday.

Sad story. What do we learn from it?

What is the recommended procedure if you actually have the man overboard on a line and you still can't get them on board?
