The one thing that concerns sailors is how to get a man in the water back on board if he can’t help himself. Attaching him to the boat while we set up a retrieval rig is key. But on yachts we can’t reach down to get a line onto him and even on motorboats with bathing platforms it is very difficult to grab and keep hold of the casualty.

The answer? MOB Lifesavers. We don’t go down to the MOB, he comes up to us.

An MOB Lifesaver attaches to the lifting loop/becket in a lifejacket. When the lifejacket inflates the Lifesaver is available there on top of the bladder and easy for the rescuer to grab with the boathook. With the Lifesaver in hand, they can then secure the MOB to the boat while they set up their retrieval rig.

A Lifesaver is hand-made from ultra High weight Molecular PolyEthylene, also known as HMPE (the same material from which Dyneema® is made.) The Lifesaver is spliced into a loop with a Brummel buried tail splice.

  • READY – the Lifesaver is there on the top of the life jacket ready to be grabbed by the rescuer.
  • SIMPLE – grab the Lifesaver handle with the boat-hook and attach the man to the boat
  • STRONG – Hi-Vis line will lift over 2 tons!
