Double $ for the DanBuoy. But it's impressive in that video. When you think about MOB recovery the first or biggest issue is "locate". Add open ocean or rough conditions and 5-10 foot waves/swells aren't uncommon. A shorthanded crew (think cruising couple) can't navigate the boat and keep an eye on the MOB at the same time.

Re: New USCG approved INFLATABLE TYPE IVThrowable device

The SOS DanBuoy is v widely used (to the point of it being standard issue) for all rescue craft (incl helicopters) here...and we suggest it should be on all cruising craft as well, as it is on our beloved CatNirvana. As others noted, the emphasis on visibility for the MOB is both appropriate and practically essential...and, in our view, it makes the SOS unit very clearly preferable to the units suggested by the OP.

The SOS DanBuoy has been on the scene here for a few years...does anyone Stateside know if it's now USCG approved?

Re: New USCG approved INFLATABLE TYPE IVThrowable device

I have one as well. They have changed the mounting to one that can fit on the pushpin where mine sits. I prefer this to the pole with float and flag

👍 for the sos dan buoy
