How to Use A Throw Bag

Man Overboard!

Although we highly recommend that everyone learn how to coil and throw a dock line with accuracy, this throw bag contains loosely packed floating line that is easy to use. Watch this short video of Captain Chris while demonstrating the proper use of a throw bag.

Check out this easy way to get a line from the boat or dock to someone who has fallen overboard. You don't need to have a wicked throwing arm or even know much about boat lines to get this throw bag to your man overboard.

Want to learn more? Come see us at our next boating safety event. Click here to learn where we will be.

Practice coiling and throwing your line while snug at the dock.
With a little practice we can see synchronized line throwing! But the throw bag is still easier.
Look over Alyse's shoulder on the right side of the photo and you'll see where we keep our rescue throw bag for easy access. After 12 years we finally purchased another just because the outer bag faded. The rope was in fine shape!
Whether you use a throw bag or dock lines, practicing together with your crew is important but can still be fun!
