New overboard marker unveiled
The UK’s largest independent marine safety equipment supplier, Ocean Safety, has integrated its innovative Jonbuoy Danbuoy man overboard marker with an inflatable horseshoe to provide an all-in-one support system as well as a visual indicator for the person in the water, seriously improving the chances of identification, survival and recovery.
The Jonboy Danbuoy, which replaces the traditional Danbuoy, is mounted in a compact container on the yacht’s pushpit and is simply unclipped and thrown into the water, automatically inflating to become a bright yellow ‘stake’ marking the location.
Also in the container is a Jonbuoy inflatable horseshoe, a direct replacement for the solid horseshoe which like the Jonbuoy Danbuoy inflates automatically. It also has an oral top up tube and is fitted with reflective tape.
The combination is also fitted with a whistle, and the Jonbuoy Danbuoy is fitted with a light. The product meets the all-important requirements of ISAF Offshore Regulations, making it a lightweight and discreet alternative on racing yachts, while is it equally suitable for all vessels.
This stylish combination unit is highly visible and quick and easy to deploy. The weight of the unit means it can be accurately and safely thrown toward the person in the water.
Price £224.95 (white case) and £285 (black case) suggested retail inc VAT.
