Joe Andrews replied to Nicole E. Jacobson's discussion Backboard Straps
"I'm a fan of the velcro style straps as I can really get those tight quickly. My only concern would be that if you are modifying your rescue equipment you may not have the manufactures support and backing if something goes wrong during a…"

Joe Andrews replied to debbee lewis's discussion deep water swim test..and after
