As we continue to travel around the world coaching sea kayaking, we meet to great paddlers and coaches that have put some serious thought behind the products they build.  Steve Whetman is the man behind.

Short contact line for quick close  contact rescue of one sea kayak by another sea kayak. Quick release cam buckle with toggle also provides length adjustment. The key is the stainless loop ring that takes the direct loading off of the quick release cam buckle.  Color coded lines and two color coded carabiners for easy identification.  Selection of snag-free carabiner styles available, all held in position by a retainer ring. 

The Kong Mini D carabiners look small, but don't be fooled.  These have a load rating of 600 KG, that's 1323.00 Lbs.  Well balanced load rating for the system and it's purpose.  You have other choices of Welsh aluminum carabineers and Stainless Steel carabineers.

Primary application is a very short quick "contact" towline from a deck line of the rescuer to the bow of the casualty, putting the bow just behind the hip position of the rescuer.

Contact Tow Use
Second application is to enable a stabilized raft up by crossing the Contact Line over two boats and connecting to the outer deck lines of each boat, then adjusting it to be tight so as to prevent any chance of capsize.
