At Revere Survival, we understand the paramount importance of being prepared for man overboard (MOB) incidents. Every seagoing vessel must have a well-thought-out plan for safely recovering individuals who fall into the water. Factors such as vessel design, size, freeboard height, and accessibility all influence the choice of suitable MOB retrieval equipment.
To ensure a successful retrieval process, three key elements need to be addressed: locating and maintaining visual contact with the MOB, securing them to a rescue device while providing flotation, and safely returning them to the vessel. It’s crucial to consider that a wet, fully clothed adult, especially one exhausted from spending several minutes or more in the water, can be a significant weight to handle.
Revere Survival proudly offers an exceptional range of man-overboard retrieval products. As a leading manufacturer and distributor, we provide some of the best and most advanced equipment in the industry.
Horseshoe Lifebuoys: These essential flotation devices are carried by the majority of leisure yachts. Designed for easy deployment, they offer buoyancy to keep the MOB afloat. Options include various horseshoes, rings, lights, and throwing strops to ensure comprehensive safety.
Jon Buoy Retrieval Systems: Our range of Ocean Safety Jon Buoy features innovative MOB retrieval solutions. The Jon Buoy Recovery Module, for instance, automatically inflates to create a stable raft for the person overboard to sit on.
Safety Ladders: Safety ladders can assist MOBs in reboarding their vessel independently. These ladders are designed to be easily deployed and offer a reliable means of regaining access to the vessel.
The experts at Revere Survival are dedicated to helping you select the ideal MOB retrieval system for your specific boating needs. We take into consideration factors such as your budget, crew size, and vessel type to ensure a tailored solution that prioritizes safety.
Remember, in addition to retrieval equipment, it’s crucial to quickly locate individuals in the water, especially in challenging conditions like night-time or inclement weather. Explore our range of locator beacons and lifejacket light options to bolster your safety measures.
Lastly, we cannot stress enough the importance of practising MOB retrieval procedures with your crew before setting sail. Familiarity with the equipment and efficient execution of rescue techniques can make all the difference in a critical situation.
At Revere Survival, we are committed to your safety on the water. Trust us to provide you with top-quality MOB retrieval equipment, expert guidance, and peace of mind. Together, let’s ensure a safer boating experience for all.
