This intuitive rescue system, goes over the person and under the arms, to attach the lifting strap for a vertical recovery. Crew members stay inside the bulwarks when using. It provides quick recovery of conscious and unconscious people. The + Recovery Strap has two 1” web straps, with alternating handles that snap together so 1 or 2 people can lift. This is a good system if you don’t have a lifting davit. 



When deployed, the strap goes over the person's shoulders, one at a time, and then under their arms for a vertical recovery. To be used with any of our three C-Hero Rescue Davits (available in either Bitt or Flat Mount applications) or your vessel's anchor handling davit. The Rescue Kit can be easily and quickly reloaded for additional rescues. The + Standard Strap automatically detaches from the snaps and holding blocks to the person by cinching the slide buckle across the  chest.​​​
