YACHT FLOTATION


EL 1000 & EL 500

To lift yacht:

  1. Drop two ropes off the bow and two off the stern, one end starboard and the other port side. Pull the ropes clear of the rudder and propeller under the hull to the keel or under the keel in case of long keel vessels.
  2. Secure one lift bag to each rope, ie two per side.
  3. Pull the opposite side of each rope until the lift bag is immersed and then secure the ropes to a strong point. It may be necessary to use blocks to lead the ropes to a cleat or winch.
  4. Inflate the lift bags with a scuba cylinder. The bags will conform to the hull shape and push firmly against the hull. It is safe to motor at up to 5 knots in calm waterways using this method.Use of this system will enable yachts to shortcut Gibraltar via the Canal du Midi and the Bay of Biscay via the Rhone. Avoid ocean conditions via the US Intracoastal Waterways…..

NOTE: WOOD-Most wooden hulls will float their own weight and provide some additional buoyancy. To ascertain the amount of positive lift will require the breakdown of the epoxy, fibreglass sheeting and the metal fastenings weight as they are part of the hull. Then ONLY use the wood portion of the vessel assumed to be under water in emergency. Not the deck areas.

ADDITIONAL BUOYANCY CAN BE GAINED BY: Cockpit, drains closed and bailed dry; can be very efficient floatation and shelter for the crew. Water or Fuel Tanks only partially full – some tanks can be pumped empty. Foam filled or airtight lockers – watertight bulkheads / doors and closed cell foam bunk cushions.

Alternatively send your vessels design and weight details to Turtle-Pac for a detailed recommendation for your consideration.
