The Man Overboard Rescue and Recovery System

How it Works

  • Weight of only 3kg allows for easy throw and soft surfaces alleviate injury risk
  • Delivers a wide open loop for easy entry in rough seas- even an Inflated lifejacket does not impede
  • Minimal diameter buoyancy frame is easily flipped overhead for entry
  • The casualty is captured by two slings: a detachable chest sling and the leg sling formed by the float frame
  • By a natural reaction, the casualty’s arms rise up and drape out over the frame
  • The rescuer can now snatch the tension-activated chest sling from mountings and capture the casualty 
  • The frame provides flotation while the casualty is being drawn closer to the rescuer
  • Double sling recovery ensures a safe “low deckchair” posture for the hoist aboard
  • Captured position now allows for walk aboard whilst being hoisted
  • An additional handle on the frame assists the haul on to deck
