Our company was founded to help save lives. Coast Guard statistics prove that most drowning deaths occur when people fall out of small boats. Boaters believe they can reboard such boats if they fall out, but in reality they cannot! Our company mission is to reduce the number of these needless tragedies by providing sturdy, simple re-entry steps.
