Jimmy Green Man Overboard Rescue Strop
The Jimmy Green Man Overboard recovery strop is made from 50mm polyester webbing with Stainless Steel Triangles for attaching the rope to:
and a woggle to close the strop up tight against the MOB casualty.
You can use it by itself as part of your MOB procedure but as it has no padding it is going to be similar to using a safety line. The Jimmy Green Oscar system uses it as the internal strop and then adds padding to it. When you see them side by side you can see how the two are related.
It is a very useful strop and I've used it to extend a Halyard when it was too short
or as a second strop to support the legs.
Want more practice using Jimmy Green Rescue Strops?
Maybe you've been on the RYA / ISAF coastal Safety Coarse and found the MOB recovery part interesting or perhaps you've just done your Dayskipper or Yachtmaster practicals and run through the MOB procedures?
Want to do more MOB? If so, we have a couple of options for Man Overboard Rescue training, both of which are free. All I ask is that I can use any photos I take on the website, social media, magazine articles etc.
Yacht clubs - I can run half day sessions on your yachts as part of your regular sailing weekends. Why not finish a cruise on Sunday lunchtime and spend the afternoon learning 5 MOB techniques.
Own boat sessions - anything from a few hours to a full day using all the equipment on your yacht. As long as your within a few hours drive of Jct 13 on the M25 I'll come along and you can try anything you want.
If you are interested in trying any of these MOB equipment out yourself then please contact me at MOBManOverboard@gmail.com or use the contact form. If you have time, can you add some info on if you are a Dayskipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster and if you've done the RYA Sea Survival or the RYA / ISAF Coastal Safety course.
