Watercraft Solutions for Rescue Professionals
There is nothing Natural About a Disaster
CPI's Water Rescue Division has been producing innovative inflatable rafts and products for commercial applications for more than 20 years. Based in Kyle, Texas, CPI enjoys an international reputation for delivering durable rafts, inflatable boats, and accessories to help commercial, military, and rescue personnel accomplish their mission. Due to flooding and devastation in Texas left behind by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, CPI aggressively expanded its rescue offering by introducing the Res-Q-Series.
CPI researched the rescue inflatable boat market and found the Raptor line of heavy-duty inflatable boats used by military and emergency operations for many years. This technology succeeded under extremely hazardous conditions and met CPI's stringent construction and durability requirements.
Res-Q Raft 400
Weighing in at only 44 pounds, the four-person Res-Q Raft 400 is the ultimate portable response vessel. It includes a drop stitch floor that can be removed and used as a throwable-complete with D-rings and handles.
The raft also features reinforced D-rings for towing behind another boat or multiple points tethering from shore. In-line handles port and starboard serve as handholds for evacuees and rescuers alike. The extra durable 40-ounce Evaloy bottom material also makes this vessel suitable for ice rescues.
Swift Water Res-Q Sled
The upward curve of the Swift Water Res-Q Sled's bow inhibits water intrusion in the fast-moving currents. Strategically positioned handles function has handholds for up to three crew, allowing the craft to serve as a stretcher. Four deck-mounted handles facilitate boarding from the water while deck pads provide traction once rescues are on board. Five tube-mounted D-rings are available to tow or tether the sled. Four additional D-rings are mounted to the deck to secure gear.
Res-Q Raptor 380
While it may be the smallest boat in the Res-Q Raptor fleet, the 380 is big on performance. With a six-person capacity, the 380 is the perfect quick-response boat with ample room for personnel and evacuees. It has reinforced D-rings for towing and a roll-up aluminum floor that provides interior stability yet minimizes storage requirements. Equip it with an optional 30-hp engine for swift water or long-range rescues. A manual inflation pump and gauge are standard; an optional high-pressure connector is available for self-inflation.
