Man-Over-Board Recovery System for smaller rescue crafts
- A manual recovery system for gentle and effective rescue of casualties.
- Quick, safe and effective retrieval - saves time for the rescue personnel
- Folds for stowage on deck or railing. Always ready for immediate deployment

The Dacon Rescue Frame consists of a number of parallel fibre glass bars connected by slotted webbing. The outer bar is equipped with flotation, a maneuvering stick and hand-loops for easy grip.
When deployed, the Rescue Frame hangs down the freeboard forming a cradle in the water. The casualty is positioned in the cradle and gently rolled onboard by lifting the grip bar or the retrieval lines.With the optional hydraulic Drum and Davit, recovery can be performed single-handed.
Available for any freeboard height. The system stows in a minimum of space. Simple, effective and inexpensive.
Please call with your freeboard, desired width and connection point details.
The Dacon Rescue Dummy is specially suited for evacuation- and recovery drills as it, unlike most makeshift dummies, will float and drift in the water as well as handle with very similar characteristics as a person.
It may be used with any recovery method including the Dacon Rescue Scoop and the Dacon Rescue Frame. It is also well suited for helicopter rescue drills from water or life raft.
The Dacon Rescue Dummy is extremely robust and will take severe abuse. It may be dropped in the water from any realistic height from vessel, rig or helicopter and may be handled in just about any manner.
With a height of 6 feet, all the main joints and proportions of a human and a weight of about 90 kilos, it resembles a person in most rescue situations. It will also demonstrate quite realistically the handling problems a rescue crew will be faced with in a real situation.
