About GROUNDLINE GRAB
Boat health & safety device for any groundline
GROUNDLINE GRAB was born out of my workings on super yachts.
Out of the many operations that I was involved with in the function of the super yacht , health and safety was the no. 1 priority on the boats, but when it came to winching the groundline in, or in fact any line, whether it was from the sea bed or the dock lines, we were still in the 'dark ages' when it came to the safety of securing these lines.
Being asked to secure these lines with a 'stopper rope' and having to operate in the 'snap back' area, whilst trying to attach a knot, was in my opinion and other deck hands opinions, not taking any health and safety in to consideration.
The GROUNDLINE GRAB is an efficient and safe way of securing the tensioned lines and is the only product that has been specifically designed for this 'one operation '
