ISO 9650-1 Transocean liferaft

Designed for navigation in extreme conditions : large capacity and quantity of ballast pockets, large area drogue anchors, -15°C inflation temperature (group A), double insulating floor, fluo orange canopy with automatically erecting arch tube, 4.3 cd. outside light and retro-reflecting stripes.

The Transocean ISO 9650-1 also features a ballasted reversible ladder and grab handle to ease embarking This system allows the victim to hoist himself up on the ladder and then topple easily into the raft.
Should the liferaft inflate upside down, the boarding ladder simply reverts, to allow the victim to pull himself on the capsized liferaft and make it easier to turn over the raft in its natural position.

Two types of survival equipment packs are available, depending on the expected time that the victim may spend in the raft waiting for the rescue teams : the emergency pack includes water and food (rescue forces expected after 24 hours) and a standard pack (rescue forces expected within 24 hours)
The survival pack can be completed with a grab bag.

Iris® 50 compass

An iconic product in the Plastimo range, the Iris 50 is the highly dependable companion of yachtsmen, regatta addicts and professional racers worldwide.
It is regularly praised by technical press and prestigious skippers alike, as the most reliable, sturdy and handy handbearing compass.
• Good protection against hard knocks :
the smooth finish feels soft in your hand, and it will not slip, even if it is wet.
• Outstanding legibility
of the card, with one-degree graduations.
• No parallax error : a prism projects the reading of the bearing to infinity. This also contributes to a more comfortable operation, as you do not need to alternate close-reading to read the card and infinite-reading to take bearings.
• Optimum conditions to take bearings, thanks to the superb card stability and the wide 20° field of view, which will accommodate the roughest sea conditions.
• Most accurate bearing : the pivot and very hard stone are a guarantee of long life and shock resistance of your compass.
• Soft bottom cell : engineered using ultra-sonic welding, it acts like an expansion diaphragm, preventing the formation of bubbles and leaks.
• Built-in photoluminescent lighting, completely maintenance-free, impervious to corrosion, operates without batteries or radio-active tritium.
• Course reading from above the compass : you can read your compass like a standard compass, with no need to look through the prism.
