I saw that as well. Looks like it could really facilitate retrieval of a MOB.

One thing that isn't clear - do you put a line on it? If not, the video does not show the MOB being retrieved by the electric motor.

Complication of usually average MOB procedures are not necessarily an improvement.

The real challenge of MOB is finally coming alongside a MOB, not chopping them up and getting them on board.

Launching and drivinng a remote object or your own boat that you are already at the controls of?

Many folks are not good at remote controlled powered objects.

My vote is split at best.

The videos do show the MOB being retrieved by the electric drive. It's a pretty big thing though, and I imagine expensive - doesn't appear than any have been sold yet.
