The Lifesling2 saves lives!

Get your crewmember back onboard fast! Lifesling2 is Coast Guard approved and works better than a ring or horseshoe buoy because:

  • It can be towed to the overboard crewmember rather than the crewmember having to swim to it—this eliminates the danger of the crewmember coming in contact with the hull and propeller
  • It can be used as a lifting sling if the crewmember needs help out of the water

The Lifesling2 system consists of a flotation collar which is a blend of the traditional horseshoe buoy and a helicopter rescue sling. It’s connected to 125' of multi-filament polypropylene retrieving line which allows the flotation to be towed or thrown to the overboard crewmember. The collar and line are stored for protection against the elements in a new more rigid and attractive vinyl storage bag. Graphics on the bag illustrate the instructions for recovering a person in the water.

Note: This USCG-approved Lifesling2 is for powerboats with a lifting point 10' above the water, and sailboats over 20' LOA.

Too Easy

Easy to install, easy to deploy and best of all easy for even a child to use. This is an Item I hope to never need but so happy to have on hand....Read complete review

Easy to install, easy to deploy and best of all easy for even a child to use. This is an Item I hope to never need but so happy to have on hand. It sure beats looking for line and tying to a ring or cushion.

Great system, only one issue

A great safety product. My only issue is that my 4 year old Lifesling2 storage bag has fallen apart due to exposure to the sun. Bag needs to be made of a more sun-stable...Read complete review

                      Comments about Lifesling2 Overboard Rescue System:

                      I have had to use this device, and not just for towing buddies behind the sailboat in the summer after the race. It functions well. The ONLY thing I will say is the bag is garbage, it fills with water and other debris easily and after one season looks really rough. Now I had a life sling one and the case stayed their for years before I had the boat but it was unsightly. I am guessing the hard case is the way to go.
