How do I get back on board?

SOS Ladder

 

The SOS Recovery Ladder answers the question for all boaters.  SOS Marine is keeping rescue ‘fast & smart’ with the release of their new product added to the SOS family of recovery products. 

Even if you either go intentionally for a swim or fall overboard most boats do not have an ability to get you back on board. “If you don’t have some method in place it is too late to figure how to get a tired and exhausted person back on board,” says SOS Marine spokesperson.  

 It is difficult or near impossible to lift a person in wet clothes from the water level to the deck of your boat. The SOS Recovery Ladder advantage is easy to deploy as it`s designed for simplicity and speed.  The compact bag is an integral part of the ladder.  The SOS Recovery Ladder is incorporated and packed into a high visibility neon yellow mesh bag weighting around 3.3kilos and folded is only 500mm x 300mm, size similar to a ladies handbag. It has 4 deck attaching points and 6 mounting steps and a deployed length of 2.25 metres.

 The SOS Recovery Ladder is rescue ready as it can be used in conjunction with lifting halyards attached to the outer end of the ladder to assist hoisting a person on board. 

 SOS Marine is keeping it simple by improving affordable Rescue equipment for both marine professionals and the leisure industry. 

 The high quality and unique design of SOS Marine`s equipment is so well respected and highly regarded that 12 National Defence Forces worldwide are experiencing the SOS Australian quality.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
