C-HERO® VR-12 Rescue Pole with Recovery Strap

Item #


On deck, one or two crew members use the C-Hero VR-12 Rescue Pole to deploy the integral orange Rescue Strap over the head and under the arms of the person in the water for a vertical recovery – even if that person is unconscious. One or two crew members perform the recovery while remaining safe inside the bulwarks, utilizing the 10 alternating handles on the Recovery Strap. The handles continue on the strap all the way to the person in the water for ease of rescue. The system works without a lifting davit or winch, and can be used with up to 2.4 m (8') of freeboard. It can be re-rigged easily and quickly for additional rescues. Two detachable 1.8 m (6') long, 3.2 cm (1.25") diameter fiberglass foam-filled poles allow MOB to be pulled close to boat before deploying the strap. The Rescue Strap automatically detaches from the pole when being deployed.
