Reliable re-hooking in foul weather
As per LSA Code, all lifeboats approved as rescue boat must have Foul Weather Recovery system. Bringing the lifeboat safely back on board following deployment in drill or rescue operation is a crucial part of any great hook design.
VIKING Nadiro Drop-In-Ball™ foul weather recovery strop is a unique combination with minimum number of components. It gives flexible connection to the hook, absorbs shocks from high waves and ensures the heavy floating block doesn’t harm crews during lifeboat retrieval.
