This system is a technologically advanced boarding net constructed of Mil Spec webbing and extremely heavy stitching.
Each “rung” of the ladder has a length of stainless rod sewn inside that ensures that the unit will sink at a greater rate than the yacht can roll.
Every third rung is a foam-covered bearing: easy on the yacht’s hull and easy on the victim.
Attaches to toe rail, cap rail or dedicated pad eyes
Stays in place while voyaging
Deploys in under 10 seconds
Recovery using existing halyard winches
Victim is recovered easily and safely even if unconscious
Minimum operating energy required
The yacht is hove to with the B.O.B. Sling on the lee rail. Simply tack around and heave to on the appropriate tack. Drift down on the victim. Mid-ships hove to is the safest location, free of rough water, propellers, rudders and gear.
