The MOM 8-A is the fastest way to get all the necessary man overboard safety equipment to a victim in the water. The completely self-contained system is designed to be rail mounted to the stern of a boat providing instant deployment into the water near the victim.
The MOM 8-A meets World Sailing Offshore Racing Special Regulation 4.22.1 for Man Overboard Lifebuoys and the Pacific International Yachting Organization Special Regulations as Life Saving Equipment in Section 5.6. The MOM 8-A is the sailing safety standard.
The horseshoe will keep the victim afloat, while the pylon fitted with reflective tape and an LED light provide excellent visibility. The weighted sea anchor will ensure that the victim remains in the same location.
When brought along side the victim can be lifted vertically by attaching a halyard or other device to the durable lifting straps and eye rings on the horseshoe.
