This triangular Collision Mat is patterned after a design by well-known cruising expert John Neal. Intended for power or sail boats, it temporarily puts a ''patch'' over a hole in your hull if you collide with an object.
Using its three securing lines, the Collision Mat is passed under your hull until it covers up the hole. Water pressure, and tightly secured lines, hold the mat against your hull and reduce water flow so you can attempt repairs or call for help.
Made from heavy, orange, vinyl-coated fabric with 2''-wide nylon webbing around the perimeter which also reinforces the heavy grommets in each corner. For securing, we include 20' of three-strand nylon lines at each corner. Measures 4' on each edge.
