The girls from down-under now have a proven, successful rescue device that is easy-to-use and ready for immediate response if someone goes overboard.

SOS Dan Buoy is an Australian invention creating one of the biggest changes to man overboard rescues in the marine industry for decades.

The compact unit is portable and of similar size to a small hand-bag - no assembling required. You just pick up and throw. It is the only flotation of its kind in the world tested to elements of the ISO 12402 lifejacket standard, and Yachting Australia compliant.

'With increasing man-overboard incidents, a need was identified to develop a simplified rescue system for anyone using waterways and to assist in reducing the risks associated when someone goes over-board. The SOS Dan Buoy is an easier method to use with differentiating capabilities,' says a spokesperson from SOS Marine.

Professional mariners find the SOS Dan Buoy easy to mobilise in difficult and dangerous rescue operations. Deployment of several SOS Dan Buoys can be conducted from a helicopter to mark and identify the location of the person overboard. The self-inflating SOS Dan Buoy has webbing loops (patented) offering a greater sense of support, especially when rescuing the fatigued.

SOS Dan Buoy inflatable marker indicates wind and current directions. It is highly visible with a fluorescent yellow 2.5 metre streaming ribbon waving back and forth in the breeze, allowing it to be seen up to 1700 metres away. It includes a SOLAS light for night rescues.

There are many additional benefits - by removing the drogue and attaching an anchor it can be used as a temporary marker for wrecks, channels, and dive or crash sites. If you crew another boat it is easily transportable as it folds away in a small carry bag and is reusable after replacing a 33gram cylinder plus an activation cartridge.

The multi-award winning SOS Dan Buoy was developed by SOS Marine, an Australian manufacturer of specialised marine safety equipment. SOS Marine designs and manufactures safety equipment for 12 countries Defence Forces world-wide.

SOS Dan Buoy is a must-have for every skipper`s safety check list. It can be thrown by man, woman or child to someone who has the misfortune to go overboard.

SOS Dan Buoy can be seen at Sydney Boat Show from 2 to 6 August at Southern Seas Stand 716.
