The Sked Water Rescue Flotation System
The Sked Water Rescue Flotation System comes in three options
- The SK-600 Basic Foam Flotation System (Foam Buoyancy Logs)
- The SK-600A Inflatable Flotation System (Inflatable by CO2 or by mouth)
- The SK-600B Hybrid Inflatable Flotation System (Same as SK-600A but with a 15lb lead ballast bag)
The Sked Water Rescue Flotation System maintains the Sked in a nearly vertical position in the water. It is self righting and keeps the patients head completely out of the water, even in rough seas. The side floats and chest pad provides buoyancy sufficient to support two rescuers in the water, in addition to the patient, while the lead shot filled ballast keeps the foot end down and the head elevated out of the water. The system is available in a variety of configurations, including an option with CO2 inflatable side float logs and an empty ballast bag with hook and loop closure which can be filled with sand or gravel prior to use.
The SK-600B Hybrid Inflatable Flotation System
Same as the SK-600A but with the 15lb lead ballast bag in place of the empty ballast bag.
