We are the US importer of the award winning SOS Marine self-inflating man overboard buoy, or dan buoy, from Australia. It automatically deploys upon submersion in water. To trigger deployment, just toss it into the water immediately upon losing a crew overboard. Just Throw! Within seven seconds, the buoy self–inflates. This highly visible device makes keeping track of a man overboard far easier. Click to videos, documents, and accessories.
Reelsling is a man overboard recovery device for everyday boaters. It helps you draw an MOB back alongside a boat, then lift him back onboard. It is best suited to retrieve a fully conscious, uninjured crew day or night. It has abundant SOLAS light–reflective tape around its perimeter to enhance findability by searchlight. It has a whistle for signaling. Soft, comfy foam –filled buoy provides positive flotation and doubles as a lifting harness to help you get your crew aboard.

CruiserTV has published its first newsletter about cruisers and the cruising lifestyle. This June/July 2016 issue of Behind the Scenes includes the April 2016 Ensenada Race MOB rescue story, as told by the crew of Foil who saved their shipmate’s life with the dan buoy.
Watch this if you have wondered, what’s it like to be hoisted to safety by a US Coast Guard search and rescue team? This is a practice drill by professional rescue personnel using a reporter as their survivor.
MOB Is Hard to See
The film shows several perspectives looking down at the water from a USCG rescue helicopter. Note how hard it is to see the MOB. And these rescuers knew where to look for him. Our dan buoy would have made easier the job of finding him.
