This Marine Safety System Can Auto Call For Help If There’s A Man Overboard

No matter how carefully you prepare for the unexpected, sooner or later you may find yourself with a man overboard (MOB). In the event of such a situation, it’s important to recognize the problem, locate the person in the water, and bring them back on board as quickly as possible.

Of course, the first step in any rescue mission is to address the emergency at hand — without advanced awareness, you’ll only be putting yourself at a disadvantage. Enter 1st Mate and its Marine Safety and Security system. Designed to alert passengers to instances of MOB as they happen, it uses wearable fobs in conjunction with a mobile app and a central hub in order to turn your boat into a smart safety network. Should any of the passengers fall overboard, the fob will send a distress signal to the hub, alerting the captain and providing a corresponding GPS pin location on the app. And in the event that the captain finds his way overboard, the system will even cut power to the engine and guide passengers in his retrieval. As an added bonus, it doubles as a capable theft deterrent device. Available now as a single-engine kit from $572.
