Like a lot of boat owners I am easily impressed by all the “stuff” one can buy for the boat. A Halman or Nordica may be well-equipped but there is always room for a little something , especially if it is clever. At a boat show I am hard pressed to escape without contributing to the economy. The recent Halifax Boat Show wreaked its usual havoc with by sailing budget but I did find something new and it is so clever that I though it might be shared. Toss n’ save is a throwable lifeline and floatation aid. It looks a lot like a giant yo-yo. The rescue orange foam disc is about a foot across and the floating braided 50 foot line curls around it for storage. To deploy it you just throw it like a frisbee and the line uncoils as it goes out. It has 10 lb. floatation and is easy to get a hand or arm through for retrieval. It makes an addition or an alternative to the standard life ring. It was a decent price. Details can be found at www.windabout.com I have no financial interest in the product but I purchased one and I think it might be a useful addition to the boat.
