KIM Helicopter Strop
What you get when you buy the KIM Helicopter lifting strop is a well made and robust strop made from strong PVC covering a padded webbing strop that is individually certified for 150kg safe working limit and 250kg max.
It's comfortable during the lift and has reflective tape on it.
You attach your halyard or tackle to the two stainless steel D Rings
slide the woggle down to close the loop and keep you secure
and then lift the MOB out. There is a ring on the back for attaching a stabilising line to it making it easier to pull the MOB over the deck.
Want more practice using KIM Helicopter 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.
