SeaCurity Rescue Marker Buoy in red pouch

This rescue device represents a combination of a marker buoy with a salvage sling and therefore accomplishes both functions.

 

The device has been designed in such a way that the helmsman of a sailing yacht may activate the buoy with one hand only. The buoy has to be attached to the rails by means of its Velcro tapes close to the position of the helmsman. The bag has to be placed looking outward of the boat with the handle for the activation looking downwards. If the helmsman activates the device the buoy falls into the water and will be inflated immediately. Thus, you can mark without delay the position of any accident and place a rescue device at immediate reach of any victim.  The signal light on top of the pole starts to blink once it had contact with water.

 

The signal light and the flag on top of the pole are located approximately 2 m above the surface of the water. Flag and signal light can still be seen easily even under harsh conditions with strong winds because the salvage sling stabilizes the buoy in the water and the weight on the bottom keeps the buoy erect.  A sea anchor avoids that the buoy drifts too much away from the initial point of activation. The buoy is equipped additionally with a whistle within reach of the victim and retro-reflective stripes on top of the pole. All requirements of ISAF Special Regulations, item 4.22 a) and b) are thus completely fulfilled.

The victim can grab the webbing assembly around the pole and put its body between both wings of the salvage sling.  One end of the webbing assembly is equipped with a stainless steel carbine hook which the victim can put around its body for additional security closing the hook on the other end.

 

Once a boat approaches for rescue operation the buoy can be pulled alongside with handles integrated on top of the webbing assembly. Now, the victim can be pulled onboard. If this is not possible one may connect the jib or main halyard with the top sling of the webbing assembly in order to lift the person onboard.

SeaCurity Rescue Marker Buoy in ABS cont.

 

This version of the Rescue Marker Buoy represents a more advanced type of the above rescue device. It is equipped with an automatic release mechanism MK5 from UML. If you open the container the buoy falls into the water and automatically inflates thereafter. The new container is made of ABS material and has a decompression valve at the back.

 

Additionally the buoy has been added 2 pockets at different positions in order to use an AIS system. These pockets are designed to accomodate the AIS systems SEAANGEL from FT-Tec GmbH/Austria which you can buy as well from us.

 

In order to make the buoy stand uprigth in the water the ballast weight has been increased by 1,6 kg.

 

We offer as well the replacement sets which you need if the buoy has been activated.
