The principal apparatus consists of surf- and life-boats, Lyle gun and breeches-buoy apparatus and life-car.
That life-car, sir, was invented by Captain Douglass Ottinger, and this is the first one ever used.
The life-car was moving along the upper line bound for the wreck.The Knights of the White Shield|Edward A. Rand
The life-car can also be drawn like a boat between ship and shore without the use of a hawser.
From this hawser the breeches-buoy or life-car is suspended and drawn between the ship and shore of the endless whip-line.
