The pulley is marked 1 and is attached to the sailing vessel with a snap hook. Possible hooking points for this purpose are on the right or on the left of the shrouds or at the end of the boom (topping lift). The pulley is pivoted. Possible rope twists automatically become untwisted during the return process. Furthermore, the pulley is fitted with a special rope cleat. This rope cleat secures the returned rope and, thus, also the person gone overboard immediately upon his/her return on board.
B RESCUE SLING
Die Rettungsschlaufe verfügt über ein rotes Halteband, das mit einer 2 gekennzeichnet ist. Diese Rettungsschlaufe hat mehrere Funktionen:
C SEA ANCHOR
The sea anchor has got a red hand strap marked 3. To ensure that the sea anchor only unfolds in water (and not on board ship by strong winds), it is packed in a special protective cover which is environmentally friendly and completely dissolves in water within 3 seconds. The sea anchor opens very quickly, automatically and reliably as soon as it is surrounded by water.
D FLOATING ROPE
The yellow floating rope floats in water and is clearly visible on the water surface. It has a total length of approx. 60 meters. Measured from the pulley, about 50 meters of floating rope are available for the surrounding (CATCHING) of the person gone overboard. The remaining 10 meters of floating rope stretch from the pulley to the sea anchor and ensure that the sea anchor can be jettisoned unimpeded into the water.
The case is an important part of CATCH and LIFT. It is closed with two red seals and safely protects all system components contained inside from humidity, dirt, UV radiation and mechanical impact. This is the only way to ensure the reliable functioning of CATCH and LIFT. Thanks to the built-in air pressure compensation valve, this case is safe for air travel. This case is air-, dust - and waterproof according to IP67 standards. It complies with all the basic requirements of STANAG 4280 - DEF STAN 81-41 standards.
F C&L WIRE CLAMP
The C&L wire clamp is installed on the shrouds and constitutes the readily available hooking point for the pulley - regardless of the position of the sails. The shrouds are eminently suitable for the LIFT of the person gone overboard due to their stability and position. The C&L wire clamp is optional and available for all shroud diameters from 5 mm to 14.3 mm.
