Re: Type IV Throwable talk

Anyone have experience with other devices like the Mustang stick, or poles, or MOM's?

Re: Type IV Throwable talk

I Have the horseshoe with yellow poly floating line, and seat cushions. I also have a lifesling.

if I were to purchase a new Type IV it would probably be a Ring. I think it's heavier and easier to toss to get it closer to the MOB.

The Floating line does not get attached to the boat..we're not fishing and retrieving.

The idea of the line is that the swimmer can use the line to retrieve the throwable device..the hope is that either the line or the device will float by close enough to them that they can grab one or the other. Both the line and the horseshoe or ring go in the water..untethered to the boat.

Of course, as Mark said the idea is to litter the water with floating aids, so toss everything you can.

We had some guys who saved themselve last year with their cooler after the boat sank. If you toss the cooler over...just remember to remove the beer.
