Ship Salvage - Lifesaving devices:

 
LIFERINGS, LIFEBOAT OARS, & LIFEBOATS
All salvaged liferings come to us in standard marine safety orange color.  Most have the ship name
and city of registration printed; sizes are approximately 29-31" outside diameter

Salvaged Lifeboat Oars are between 9' and 15' in length.  They made great curtain rods or handrails and are available with the original paint or stripped.

*Please call or email for pricing and availability - we do not picture every lifering and oar from every shipment - there are just so many! 

Specific items pictured on this page have been sold unless they read "available" under the photo; sold items remain pictured to show the range of styles and types of each piece that exist and that we search for.  If a specific item pictured is available, it will read "available" under the picture.
