I C Brindle Survivor Helicopter Strop
The I C Brindle survivor strop is a high specification recovery strop with a thin profile foam filled sleeve for comfortable fit. The inside of the strop has rubbery non slip fabric.
You will easily see it as it's very visible with it's bright orange with black webbing and reflective tape. In fact, I See the I C Brindle (Very poor pun)
It has a woggle to close it up and fit it tight, and on the reverse you have a good sized grab handle for pulling the man overboard back on board.
Strong stainless steel D Rings are sewn into the webbing ends and makes the strop very robust.
I liked that it arrived with a certificate from an independent specialist tester showing it was tested to 300kg.
What is it like in use?
Very comfortable. I tried it during a trip to Spain to see what it was like and it was very good both as a strop under the arms but also as a seat.
Want more practice using the I C Brindle Survivor Strop?
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 and want to practice the recovery?
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.
