    Can't work for every hull/ propulsion combination but just the ticket for this RIB [rigid inflatable boat] and hydro-jet. I bet these are designed for surf rescue, a lot closer to victim than motoring out of some harbors...

    The Talus MB-H launches and recovers lifeboats, up to 15 tonnes in weight, from beaches, in a safer and faster manner than previously available. It is capable of towing such lifeboats, on specially designed carriages, at speeds of up to 12.0 kph over varying beach conditions. It has the ability to work at full power in up to 2.44m of calm water, and can drive and winch simultaneously in order to recover the lifeboat. The driver has a waterproof, protective cockpit, and duplicated controls, to allow operation of the vehicle whilst facing in either direction.

    Not only efficient design; but seems donated by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution towards varied life stations of the British Isle. Just read an article reporting 2 donated Ferrari's went to auction helping fund equipment things like this!

    Old video, but fun


    Looks like they still have some development to do in the launching/retreival process.
