Jelly fish guard

29 September 2008

With the sea nettle and jelly fish population on the rise along the east coast of the United States and in other areas, Nettle Net® Boat Pools® can be used from boats or docks to keep swimmers sting-free all season long. The unique pools will be on display in Annapolis at the United States Sailboat Show (booth O3) October 9-13 and the United States Powerboat Show (land booth 26) October 16-19.

Available in 8, 12 and 20 foot diameters (20 foot pool pictured left), the eight foot deep, portable pools inflate (foot pump included) and launch in minutes and store compactly when not in use.

The rugged Nettle Net flotation ring is made of the same composite fabric used in aircraft life vests and life boats. When inflated, the ring has sufficient buoyancy to support the weight of people without becoming submerged anywhere along its length. It is buoyant and rigid enough that it remains circular and totally afloat, even in boat wakes. The netting material is attached to the flotation ring to form a continuous protective barrier, completely around and below. The mesh is small enough to bar stinging sea nettles, but open enough to allow water to move freely through it without acting like a sail or parachute. It will resist years of wear and tear.

For more information about Nettle Net® Boat Pools®, visit booth O3 at the US Sailboat Show or land booth 26 at the US Powerboat Show, call 1+410.544.0264 or log on to
