Anti-Inversion Cushion KSK - Self-inflating Mast Float - An Airbag for dinghies and catamarans! Remains a small and discreet package at the masthead intil it is needed.
KSK 20 - Vol. 20 l, 640 g, deflated 38 x 11 cm
KSK 40 - Vol. 40 l, 860 g, deflated 50 x 11 cm
The anti-capsize cushion keeps the top of the mast on the water’s surface. In this way inversion is prevented and righting the boat again becomes easier.
The way the SECUMAR-Anti-Capsize cushion works is almost like the way an airbag works - as a small package which you hardly notice it is hoisted to the mast head and only reveals its true power and size when danger threatens.
A Catamaran is particularly in danger of ending upside down when it capsizes. A relatively small buoyancy bag in the mast head can prevent a worsening of the situation because of the large leverarm. It is easier for the crew then to right the ship.
Anti-capsize protection in the mast head
The anti-capsize cushion is activated and automatically fills with CO2 gas at the moment when the mast head tips into the water.The fully inflated cushion then stops further capsizing. The system has proved its value:
- for catamarans (e.g. Prindle and Tornado)
- for large dinghys (Conger)
- and for smacks (Marine cutters made of GRP, for both masts)
The anti-capsize cushion is available in two different load carrying capacities with the relevant CO2 cartridges (SECUMAR 20 and SECUMAR 40).
Re-Arming Kits KSK20 (32g) or KSK40 (75g)
Orders outside of European mainland: As for gas inflating lifejackets, we can deliver overseas only by first removing the gas bottle. You will have to find a local source to replace this bottle for the lifejacket to function. There is no reduction for not shipping the bottle as these are of no use to us. Note, we cannot send re-arm kits overseas.
