You've invested a lot of money in your boating rig; protect that investment by bringing along an NRS Z-Drag Kit. Everything you need for rescuing that pinned boat.
With the Kit you can set up a 3:1 mechanical advantage Z-drag for magnifying your pulling effort.
Z-Drag Kits include a 150' length of rope. Your choice of either 3/8" Sterling GrabLine NFPA Rescue Rope or 1/2" Sterling HTP Static Rope.
Both kits include and all the carabiners, pulleys, tubular webbing and prusik cord needed for the setup. See Specs for the complete parts list.
All the gear packs into the included 40L Red Purest Mesh Duffel Bag.
NRS also include a copy of the Z-Drag Rescue Crib Sheet. It illustrates the 3:1 Z-drag, other mechanical advantage systems and the various rope knots used in rescue work.
The Crib Sheet is a good reminder tool, but we recommend you take a river rescue class. There you'll not only get to practice the Z-drag, you'll also learn other skills for protecting yourself and your boating companions.
These un-pin kits are designed for heavy boat extractions. They can certainly be used for rescuing smaller boats like kayaks, however for carrying with you in a kayak we've developed the KayakUn-Pin Kit (Item # 45309.01.) Its compact components can easily be stowed in the boat or in your rescue life jacket.
