im surprised he could see a black fishing ball several klicks away,  but after trying to stay afloat and swimming for 100 yards with your clothes on,  it might seem like a couple klicks

Yeah, if you're only head height in the ocean your horizon is a lot less than "several km"

but amazing that he was found - by his own ship.

I know of a few cases one a crew member in the Med pitched over and was found by his own boat 8-10 hours after don't think he had anything to hold onto, had a mate that lost his cook over the side at night mid Tasman and found her both these cases were pre MOB buttons on Gps units.

Recip courses with drift figgered maunally.
