Your throwable type 4

We have a Life-sling on the boat deck and a 24" throw-able life ring by each pilot house door.*

We*did a*man overboard drill one time when a big cushion went over the side.* That was an eye opener.* It's amazing how fast you lose site of an object when you are trying*to turn the boat around in any kind of sea.* We learned that one person keeps visual contact with*the object/person in the water and does nothing else till*the object/person*is*along side the boat.*
