USCG/A! Type IV
It's one thing to get the boat back to a man overboard. Getting the man back in the boat can be far more difficult, especially if the victim is unconscious. The USCG-approved Life Sling 2 is the most compact, economical, and effective solid lifesaver unit on the high seas. Stanchion-mounted, the Lifesling2 pack contains a pliable center section horseshoe, 120' of 3/8" floating polypropylene line, and an optional water-activated personal marker light. The idea is to deliver contact instantly to the crew in the water, facilitating short-handed retrieval without losing time (and, quite possibly, losing sight of your crew). A hoist and tackle system is another option designed to help bring even your beefiest crew aboard safely, even if injured, unconscious, or in atrocious sea conditions.
