P14031: Jib Trimmer Transfer Bench

Publicly Available Manufacture & Build Instructions

Jib Transfer System Overview

The adaptive sailing jib transfer system is a device that enables people with lower limb disabilities to actively participate in the sport of sailing. The device provides a seat and platform for the user to sit upon, and provides a mechanism of transport from one side of the boat to the other without requiring any leg usage. When the user releases the brake, the device swings from its locked position on port or starboard to the opposite side, and automatically locks into position again. This enables the user to perform the duties of a jib trimmer crewmember on a Sonar class of sailboat.
