Sail-World.com : Boat owners survey with Musto Jacket prize draw

Boat owners survey with Musto Jacket prize draw

‘You’re the Skipper, You’re Responsible’ driving force behind Mobilarm survey into boating safety behaviour.

Always on Watch – Mobilarm man overboard systems are designed to protect skipper and crew from going overboard unnoticed by providing an automatic and immediate alert onboard the vessel in a man overboard (MOB) incident.


'We’re witnessing a growing awareness of boating safety, being driven by campaigns such as ‘You’re the Skipper, You’re Responsible’ that reinforces the message that the skipper of every boat is responsible for the safety of their vessel and the people on board.' said Mobilarm Marketing Manager, Lorraine Hammacott.

'Understanding our customers’ attitude to safety when they’re on the water, and how that is changing, is very important in making sure that what Mobilarm has to offer is up-to-date and in line with demand. This survey is an effective way for us to assess and evaluate what our customers are thinking, and the incentive of winning a top quality ocean jacket worth $1500 we hope will encourage boaters to enter the draw.'

And safety is what Mobilarm is all about. 'Two out of three man overboard incidents occur in good weather, good visibility and light to moderate winds so there’s no doubt that the MOB risk is always there, regardless of the conditions.' Said Hammacott.

Mobilarm is lightweight, waterproof and potentially, life saving. -    


'If the worst happens and someone does go over the side, the skipper needs to know straight away so he can quickly turn the boat around and pick them up – the length of time someone spends in the water is critical to their survival.

Mobilarm’s man overboard alarm systems automatically set off the alarm in under 10 seconds of someone entering the water so everyone aboard knows there’s an emergency and can react to it almost immediately.'

The system is simple. Each person on board wears a lightweight pendant which continuously transmits a ‘safe’ signal to a central display console. If that signal is broken – which happens if the pendant goes underwater or out of range – the system automatically raises the alarm and will even create a waypoint on your GPS or plotter, giving you the exact location that the person went into the water.

You can also make use of the secondary relay to activate your engine shut-off, dan buoy release or other devices, making it ideal for single handers too.

Nothing can substitute common sense and good seamanship, but being prepared for and aware of the risks are the most important elements of safe and responsible boating. When it comes to preventing people from going overboard undetected, a Mobilarm system can give any skipper peace of mind that he’ll return to dry land with everyone safe on board.
