Seattle Boat Show 2016 number 4

Basic Throw Bag

For the 2016 show we have made a very basic throw bag which will sell for a very basic price. It still has all the functionality of our standard products, we have just used a less expensive rope (which does not have the UV durability) and removed some of the bells and whistles.

This 50 foot throw bag is perfect if you want one for your kayak or can keep it out of the sun on a larger boat. For $16.95 it is a real bargain. It has 3/8″ rope and the bag is 1000d Cordura fabric using our “cornet” design for easy stowing. We manufacture these throw bags at our facility in Tacoma, WA.

Come check them out and take one home at our booth number 2122 on the Concourse Level (upstairs). We are on the west side, about in the middle next to the Intellian booth which has large satellite domes.

Winslow Life Raft

Friday we received the Boat Show pricing from Winslow. On some models the discount exceeds $1000.00 and they are picking up the shipping cost (subject to a bit of fine print) which could be another $150.00 savings. If you were ever thinking about purchasing a Winslow Life Raft, this would be an excellent time.tutorial android

Winslow offers four basic models:

  • The Rescue Raft is designed for inshore use where you don’t need a canopy or equipment. It gets your body out of the water and keeps the crew together. It comes in 4, 6 and 8 person sizes.
  • The ULO Raft is a coastal service life raft which has a canopy, minimal equipment and dual buoyancy chambers. It packs in a small, light configuration and is also available in 4, 6, and 8 person capacities.
  • The SLOP is Winslow’s offshore life raft which has an extensive equipment pack, inflatable floor, boarding platform, canopy with tripod arch system and large ballast pockets. This model comes in 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 person sizes.
  • Finally their ISO 9650 raft fills the needs of racing sailors. Like the SLOP it ranges from 4 to 12 person capacities.

Come see us in our booth on the Concourse level to learn more, or place an order.   We are in booth number 2122 right next to the large Intellian satellite domes. The show starts Friday January 29th and closes on the evening of February 6th. Winslow’s pricing is valid through the close of the show.

USCG Requirements Regarding Life Floats and Buoyant Apparatus

February 17, 2016

Congress has passed the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2015 and the President has signed it into law. The Act as passed changes several components that went into Policy Letter 15-05 (below). It appears that prior to the requirements changing the Coast Guard needs to change the regulations in 46CFR (a policy letter will not suffice).

Confusing, you bet! Even the Coast Guard is confused but as of today I am told that the regulations have not changed for either commercial fishing or passenger carrying vessels.

If you have questions, give me a call at (253) 627-6000.

Rollie Herman


 

December 18, 2015 the USCG published Policy Letter 15-05 which outlines the requirements for “out of water” survival craft that go into effect February 26, 2016.

This letter covers phase in policies for all classes of vessels required to carry survival craft. I do not believe that it covers the changes voted on by the US Senate December 18, 2015 which if accepted by the House would make a difference to passenger carrying vessels.

The Coast Guard has tried to make a difficult subject simple with tables at the end of the document. There are still changes that need to made to the Code of Federal Regulations so I doubt this letter is the last word but it is an excellent start.

Crew Overboard Lessons

Last night I was reading an interesting article published in Yachting Monthly about recovering a victim who had fallen overboard and was attached to the vessel by a tether.

Yachting Monthly Article

There were several observations that I took from the article:

  • It is awfully difficult to recover someone who is dragging alongside the vessel attached by a tether.
  • There is a good chance of drowning while attached to a tether alongside a vessel.
  • Tethers should be short enough to keep you from going overboard in the first place.
  • Jacklines need to be positioned in a manner to help keep tethers short enough to keep the crew onboard.
  • Prior planning and training are paramount to saving the stricken crewmember.

I also found it interesting that Sir Robin Knox-Johnston has successfully recovered two crewmembers who had fallen overboard and that in his tenure running the Clipper Round the World Race three more individuals had been recovered successfully. That goes to show that with proper planning (and maybe a bit of luck) crew falling overboard does not need to equate to death.

Give us a call if you want to discuss your jackline or tether needs. (253) 627-6000
