Any Experience with Revere RescueMax MOB recovery system?

I asked about the RescueMax MOB recovery system in another thread Impressions from the Providence Boat Show, but got no response on this question. I thought I might get a better response in the Gear forum.

When I started to look into it online today, I couldn't find any indication it is USCG approved, and it doesn't even appear on the Revere website. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with this unit.

They said it does NOT carry any USCG approval as a PFD or throwable device. This significantly dampens my interest, but I would still like to hear from anyone who has experience with it or knows more about it.

tommays will become famous soon enough
We have done a LOT of practice with the lifesling every spring and its a drop and circle device and hope like HELL the MOB can grab it because putting somebody else in water really goes against all training

We planing on going to the safety at sea on April 14 as Zoooms owner and myself think the 200 bucks is money well spent

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Any Experience with Revere RescueMax MOB recovery system?

Hi,
I purchased the RescueMax a few months ago. I was initially impressed with the system until recently. There appears to be a serious defect in the construction. While the bag is made of a nice UV resistant material, the webbing, which is used to secure the unit and person being rescued to the boat, is made of cheap material which has already UV degraded/disintegrated. I am glad I found this out before needing to use it!

Anyone who has one of these units, check for webbing failure issues.
