If interested check the classifieds please. I have a spare.
Agree. That is neat. Boy, that guy that jumped in sure must have drawn the short straw. I was cold just looking at him.

Re: Sos dan bouy

Nice implementation.

We've been using similar devices in diving for many years. Surface Marker Buoys, or SMB's, are carried rolled up and with a spool of line, deployed during safety stops or near the end of a drift dive so the boat can come get you. Also, versions are built into BCD's and inflated at the surface so you can be spotted by the boat.

My personal SMB is a 5' safety orange tube, with a spool and 100' of line.

Re: Sos dan bouy

Plastimo has one for ages. I had one on my boat since I bought it, back in 2002.

They come not in a bag but on a small canister. Now there are several companies making them. This one is the less expensive, at least in Europe:

The current units available here are a lot more money. This is a good unit at a decent price and you don't have to have that damn pole stickin' up in the air all the time.
I did not use it for racing so it was indifferent if it was already approved or not. At the time my younger son was 8 year's old and we bought the boat 1500Nm away from home so we had a voyage to do and lots of night sailing.

Night sailing with kids give me some apprehension so that seemed to me like a safety item to have. They have a light on top of that inflated post and a sea anchor to stay in position.
