Dan Bag™ Dan Buoy Holder


The Dan Bag is a convenient and functional holder and mount for the SOS Dan Buoy MOB marker (not included). Mount within reach of the helm to facilitate the quick deployment of the dan buoy. This durable holder can be bulkhead– or bracket–mounted. It is fabricated from flexible reinforced PVC, often used in inflatable boat manufacturing. It is weather- and UV light-resistant.

The PVC material is easily drilled so that alignment with other attachment strong points is easy.

Note: day–glow dan buoy is stored inside white Dan Bag:

  1. Remove dan buoy from white Dan Bag holder
  2. Throw dan buoy to MOB.

Optional rail mount brackets are not included (see below).

This low maintenance flexible PVC plastic holder is engineered to hold your SOS Marine dan buoy. It can be bulkhead mounted or rail / stanchion mounted with the optional rail mount brackets.

Mounting Options for Dan Bag

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 Bag 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, use these rail mount brackets (sold individually). (SKU RM100B - not included with Dan Bag - suits ⅞″ to 1″ diameter tubing; see adjacent image).
