LS1 Water Rescue Board Features

Each ocean rescue board benefits from over 28 years of research and development by life-saving professionals, big wave surfers, and the finest watermen on the planet. Built to outlast any other PWC rescue sled on the market, each solid-core lifeguard rescue board is equipped with a proprietary aluminum stringer system designed to carry in excess of 450 lbs more than the fulcrum of the PWC’s transom. For best performance, we recommend using one of our transom adaptors to attach your LifeSled rescue board to your PWC.

Rescue Sled Template Icon

Optimized Template

Every LifeSled is a result of over 28 years of research and development by the industry’s finest watermen operating in extreme conditions worldwide. The LifeSled outline has been optimized to fit into the draft of a PWC. The protected bullet-nose design allows for a 45˚ pivot off a PWC transom, keeping it highly maneuverable. The 70/30 rails allow stable tracking even while a driver breaks loose for quick turns. The rescue board’s length is optimized for comfort yet does not impede maneuverability. The swallow tail design facilitates the centering of a body even when an incapacitated victim needs to be pulled aboard.

Cross Linked Polyethylene Icon

Deck Materials

We use fine cell hypoallergenic cross-linked polyethylene on each of our solid-core LifeSleds. This comfortable, abrasion-resistant material actually gets tackier when wet, offering greater overall grip. By default, we use a highly visible, colorfast, and weatherable yellow that is stable in high ultraviolet settings. The deck’s excellent resistance to chemicals allows it to be sterilized by bleach, soap, and alcohol.

Three Point Jet Ski Rescue Sled Hook-Up Icon

3-Point Hookup

Attachment of the LifeSled to most any personal watercraft takes less than 3 minutes. Used with our Dyneema® 9,000-pound test tow loop and lateral bungee stabilizers composed of 2 x ½” double-sheathed, marine-grade shock cords, your PWC rescue sled has the ultimate strength, stability, and flex available. The stabilizers allow for 45˚ pivots for enhanced maneuverability in critical situations. The large displacement of the load area minimizes stress on tow components, extending their life while maximizing the sled’s strength-to-weight ratio.

Replaceable Rescue Sled Handles Icon

Replaceable Handles

Our handles are internally and externally fiber-reinforced and have a 750+ pound break strength. The LS1 has ten 9.5″ handles and the LS2 is fitted with twelve 9.5″ handles. These tacky-when-wet handles allow a victim to be carried like a backboard. Flexible enough to allow a victim to be hoisted over yet still firm enough to fence them in. These handles were designed to be ultraviolet and weather resistant without extraneous shrouds or screws.

Nose Guard Icon

Molded Nose Guard

This extremely impact-resistant nose guard is custom molded from UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) and will not warp under the heat of intense sunlight. Each nose guard is designed with extreme compressive strength in mind and abrasion resistance for long wear.

Hull Material Icon

Hull Materials

Each solid core water rescue sled is equipped with a protective hull made from a proprietary weatherable copolymer that will not warp under the intense heat from the sun. The hull is highly impacted and abrasion resistant and will retain its hardness and gloss for several years of marine use. Our proprietary copolymer has the extreme compressive strength for resistance to folding and creasing. Our hulls are dyed in the highly visible “Coast Guard Orange” and are UV-stable, colorfast, and easily mended.

 


LS Inflatable

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Inflatable PWC rescue sleds are a great option for seasonal  or flat water users where high surf is not engaged. Inflatables are extremely durable but are certainly not the choice in heavy surf or swiftwater situations. The stability and durability of the composite-constructed LS-1 or LS-2 is what is indicated for high surf and extreme swiftwater situations. Inflatables, on the other hand deflate to a mere few cubic feet for travel and/or easily stored for winter, if necessary. They are lightweight (<30 lbs) and can easily be managed by one operator.

Dimensions:  Width:  39.5in.  Height:  67in.  Depth:  4in.

–        UV-protected military grade rubber

–        316 stainless steel D-Ring connection points

–        Reinforced double rail band

–        V-drop stitch core

–        12 durable grab handles

–        Lifesled extreme-duty NOSEGUARD which eliminates damage to sled and transom alike

–       Comes with pump, storage / travel bag and repair kit.

Color:   Yellow Deck w/ Black Traction –  Coast Guard Orange Bottom

Replacement Nose Guard

 

This extremely impact-resistant nose guard is custom molded from UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) and replaces worn out LS1 and LS2 nose guards. Each nose guard is designed with extreme compressive strength in mind, abrasion resistance for long wear, and won’t warp under the intense heat of the blazing sunlight. Lifesaving professionals like to keep a few on hand for quick maintenance on their fleet of water safety sleds.

LifeSled Bungee Cords (1)

Part of our severe-duty, 3-point, LifeSled connection system, the lateral Bungee Stabilizers are composed of two half-inch, double-sheathed, marine-grade shock cords. These stabilizers allow rescue boards to pivot 45° for enhanced maneuverability in critical situations. The lateral Bungee Stabilizers attach to Wichard U-Bolts mounted to the rear sides of the personal watercraft using either the Bungee Carabiner Clips or the easy to use Quick Release Snap Shackles. Our modular lateral stabilizer system will last approximately 3 years or more and simply screws into the LifeSled’s robust 1″ NPT fittings. This replacement Bungee Stabilizer ships as a single unit, so if you need more than one or like to keep a few on hand for quick maintenance, make sure to add a few of the inexpensive stabilizers to your cart.

Price: $35.00 plus shipping 


Replacement Handle Kit (1) 

Our handles are internally and externally fiber-reinforced and have a 750+ pound break strength. These tacky-when-wet handles allow a victim to be carried similarly to a backboard; flexible enough to allow a victim to be hoisted over, yet still firm enough to fence them in. These handles were designed to be ultraviolet and weather resistant without extraneous shrouds or screws. The replacement Handle Kit ships as a single unit, so if you need more than one or like to keep some extras on hand for quick maintenance, make sure to add a few to your cart. Kit includes one handle and two grommets.

Resulted from 14 years of R&D by Hawaii’s finest watermen operating in extreme North Shore conditions.

Bullet-nose allows 45° fish-tail pivots off jet-ski transom. Highly maneuverable. Barely affects low-speed motoring while increasing the overall stability of craft. Replaceable nose guard protects the nose of sled and jet-ski transom from wear. 70/30 rails allow sufficient tracking for stability while still allowing the driver to “break loose” for quick turns. Overall length sufficient for comfort & security yet short enough for maneuverability. Swallowtail design allows for victim centering. Design allows the sled to be folded over jet-ski when not in use.
Hull Material: Core:
Proprietary weatherable copolymer. Highly impact resistant. Will not heat-warp in intense sun. Extreme compressive strength (resistance to folding, creasing). Flexibility even in freezing temperatures. UV-stable (colorfast & weatherable). Extreme abrasion resistance. Easily mended. High-visibility “COAST GUARD ORANGE.” Linear, low density, closed-cell Polyethylene foam reinforced with aluminum and stainless steel stringers. Two 48″ aluminum stringers and one 24″ Stainless steel stringer assure tip-to-tail integrity, especially over transom fulcrum. Compare this to “boogie-board material” boards. Highly buoyant (over 450 lbs dead weight buoyancy) even in freshwater. (compare this to molded boards) Not brittle in cold water, excellent for the ice-rescue board. Absorbs vibration while underway. (compare this to molded boards)
Deck Material: Handles:
Fine cell polyethylene. Aesthetics (bright color, fine cell structure) Abrasion resistant. Tacky when wet. Comfortable. High visibility yellow. UV-stable: colorfast & weatherable. Fiber-reinforced, tacky-when-wet. (Ten on LS1, twelve on LS2 – each 9.5″) Handles anchored internally – virgin hull. Compare with other sleds looped through the hull. Flexible – allows the victim to be hoisted over yet still firm enough to fenced-in. UV, weather resistant.
