An inflatable rowboat. Other ways are more trouble at times. If it's flipped or in weeds, another boat won't get it back to shore. The fishing reel and tennis ball trick will do sometimes unless it's out of throwing range.

Guys, check this link out. I just uploaded it about 5 min ago. This is the "CRV" My friend and I are SV27 nuts and he can never seem to let out of the throttle, thus the need for the CRV or "Crash Recovery Vehicle" This was very easy to build with PVC from Home Depot and an old boat that you have laying around. We did have to upgrade the motor to make sure it would have the power to push the recovery tongs and the flipped boat. We used a E-Maxx motor because it comes from the factory to handle 14.4 volts, and since we are only pushing 7.2 to it we don't have a heat issue at all.

I am going to make a "CRV" like yours and push it with my turbo vee. It has a single e maxx motor too.

It works great and it is so much better than casting out for it and just hopeing that you catch it, also better than swiming for it.

FYI I used 1/2 inch PVC for everything except for the tongs in the front. I wanted an attachment that would float by itself and float higher in the front to keep the tongs from diving into the water, to make this happen I used an addapter to go from 1/2 inch id pipe to 3/4inch for the tongs.

Great Idea to recover. I think I will build one of those Dumas kits for the same purpose. wo
