I attended a demonstration over a decade ago in which a flooded boat containing salvage bags was sailed in Sydney Harbour. This system was developed by a sailor who had literally had to pump and bail for his life for eight days after a storm swept away his dinghies and life raft and his boat’s hull was damaged by the broken mast.
His updated Turtle-Pac buoyancy products are now also used in aircraft. As far as I’m aware, this is the only firm currently operating that claims much depth of experience in this field.”

Inflatable flotation bags aren’t new to the company, as they have been making air bags for over 20 years servicing
commercial salvage businesses and for use by the military to salvage downed aircraft and recover sunken equipment. The same bags are also , in various configurations, used to transport spare fuel for aircraft, boats and overland expeditions and water for drinking, fire fighting and agriculture.”

The proprietor of Turtle-Pac, Laszlo Torok, started this venture after spending more than a week bailing his dismasted, holed yacht in a major storm some years ago – quite an inspiration! The early days of the industry saw CO2 and various gas mixes stored in cylinders to inflate the bags. These days, for various practical and technical reasons, plain old compressed air is used. Scuba tanks are installed in a convenient place and flexible high pressure hose is connected tothe float bags.”
