This thermoformed Kydex-T plastic holder is engineered to hold your SOS Marine dan buoy. It can be bulkhead mounted or rail / stanchion mounted with optional rail mount brackets.
Mount on Bulkhead
Bulkhead mounting is a great choice if your vessel’s circumstances permit. Mount the dan buoy where it is easily accessible on a moment's notice when you need to throw the dan buoy to a man overboard. On a pilothouse motor yacht, this might be just inside the wheelhouse. On a commercial fishing boat, you might locate the Dan Hold on the aft end of the house in the cockpit area. You are welcome to contact us to discuss your mounting plans.
Mount on Railing
If stanchion, pulpit, or rail mounting suits your vessel better, you might use these Rail Mount Brackets (SKU RM100W - not included with Dan Hold - suits ⅞″ to 1″ diameter tubing; see adjacent image).
