Abstract : The invention describes a device to direct floating oil into a recovery mechanism comprising a flexible rubber hose having attached floats positioned at spaced intervals. Water jets are operatively connected to the hose between the floats, and counterweights are added to uniformly balance the unit. A water pump provides water to the hose which is sprayed by the jets against the oil slick, forcing it to the recovery mechanism.
