              No shit Sherlock, thankfully the human body is capable of a process known as homeostasis and won't readily perish in conditions 4 degrees hotter than the one known as "room temperature," which coincidentally approaches your IQ level

                Alright, I'll spell this out for you since the other guy won't. Water is much better at soaking up and dispersing heat than air. You can maintain your homeostasis through a variety of mechanisms, yes. None of them work when you're neck deep in saltwater sucking the heat out of you. A 4 degree drop or rise in core temperature is devastating, and a medium with a high specific heat capacity like water will get you there much faster than a 78 degree evening.

                Per the articles the dude was knocked off the target boat, not a RHIB or something. That craft looks like it has at least a 15' freeboard. I'm sure given you're ample aquatic experience getting butt blasted at Epsteins Island that you would be fine, but most people die when you put 85 pounds of gear on them, a floational vest that really is only neutrally buoyant if you're unencumbered, then pound them with waves the size of a two story house every 15 seconds.

        Water rescue is in fact, the most difficult thing you can ask your forces to do. With guys overboard that don't have signals etc., like in this case, it's a few tips and tricks away from being pure luck. You're visually searching for a person who is at best head and shoulders out of the water, with the waves to his right left front and rear all taller than him. Radar doesn't help, neither does FLIR after the first hour or so of being saturated in sea water. Best you can hope for is the guy has an EUD/GPS that can steer the search party, and I think it's quite strange neither seal here did, but we have no clue what circumstances they went overboard in.

            It's safe when you're the United States Navy, your team owns the GPS network, every other method of blue force tracking, and several that aren't publicly accessible. It would be more ridiculous that a VBSS is being carried out with no relay whatsoever when dozens of strikes are also underway at any given hour of the night.

            I have no idea what USN procedure is for boarding parties but just generally working around the deck of a hostile vessel and clambering in and out of RIBs with gear, they definitely should have them.

            >Wouldn’t that be easy to exploit?
            No, they activate when submerged. They also basically just give off a radar return and a coordinate. If they went in the sea near a vessel they were planning to board, the navigator might notice them pop up on their nav screen and/or radar but it wouldn't be exploitable in a peacetime operation like this.

              Any transmitter might give a position away but nothing says it has to be activated until there's an emergency where it's worth activating. Same goes for an IR strobe, or screaming 'Heeeellllp', in decreasing order of effective range.

                I just told you, they activate when submerged in salt-water.
                They do not activate while sitting in a RIB driving over to a vessel, nor do they activate because you got splashed by a wave. They have to be underwater and usually at some slight depth, like half a metre or so.

                Some can be manually activated too or instead.

                But being in water in any kind of gear or even just regular clothing will generally drown people pretty quick.
                I've done the "jump into a pool fully clothed then strip off" exercise and it's no fun if you're wearing clothes that aren't meant for it.
                Several kids needed to be pulled out because they got stuck with jeans around their legs and couldn't treat water.

        Have you ever tried to find someone floating in the ocean?
        It’s really really fricking hard.
        That’s why if you ever see someone go overboard, your only job is to constantly watch them and point them out. Because if you look away, you will be extremely hard pressed to find them again.

        Now add in the fact that the person is wearing gear explicitly designed to make them harder to see.

          This is correct. Despite, in fact completely contrary to what you see in the movies, a man overboard from a large boat is almost never rescued, because its too hard to find them even in the daylight

            Anonymous

            Also, not sure if it’s relevant in this particular instance but I’ll throw it out there anyway, large ships in general cannot stop quickly. Even if they do a crash stop, they might carry on for a mile or more before they actually come to a stop. And even more so if they’re trying to turn around rather than merely stopping. Which makes it even more difficult to find a man who went overboard.

        I guess. It still creeps me out. I've been swimming in deep ocean water too and did not like it. You look down and see the sunbeams disappear into the dark black. It's creepy.

    Boarding operations are difficult. Especially in the dark in rough seas. They prolly went over and the rest of the assault team continued the mission because it’s too dangerous to start rescue before the vessel is secured. In that time between going overboard and the rescue effort starting they were likely swept away and drowned or got eaten by sharks. The western Indian Ocean, including the Persian gulf and gulf of Aden, are moronicly full of sharks.

    To everybody saying that it’s difficult to see people in water: Why in the goddamn did the SEALs not have waterproof IR/visible strobes? You can see these things from aircraft. That just seems like common sense for water operation.

        Bro was knocked off a boat by a wave and the boats gunwhale was like ~20' tall so the sea state was outrageous. In the water that's like a 30' overhead assuming he's not immediately chummed by the prop or just jellied by getting bodyslammed into the hull. Your IR strobe is directional, they generally use the same type that aviators do. So if you are not facing exactly right (which you won't be) it's going to get blocked by the literal walls of water surrounding you in the swells. Not to mention the amount of wind speed they must have been dealing with too have waves that large so spray would have totally obscured anything in the trough assuming you even were able to get a hold of your beacon activate and mount it while you're having several hundred tons of water drop on your head every few seconds while trying to stay afloat. Seals don't use the regular float coat type strobes like BMs and people use, for obvious reasons. And very unlikely they would have been wearing BCs since most of their bcs are backpack style not vest style and why would you wear that when you don't have a tank to fill it because it wasn't a SCUBA mission.

          I’ve seen MS2000s under NODs and normal visible mode. This is some bullshit.
          And a second SEAL jumped in after him. If the first guy was too overwhelmed to use a strobe, what’s the second guy’s excuse?

            Probably too focused on trying to save the first guy's dumb ass to think of turning it on.

    Indeed. These two spec ops ooperatives are very likely to be alive and on their way by land to assassinate the Hootie Prime Minister. I heard the operation is called Operation Hootie Blowfish.

    Very SEAL thing to do actually.
    Or did you forget a bunch of these guys drowned back in Grenada literally just because they miscalculated their buoyancy limits?

        I believe it because hubris + overestimating their own capabilities has been the no. 1 cause of SF death for 50+ years.
