• The MOM 8-S meets the new sailing safety standard. Designed to provide the market with a lighter, this smaller version of the current MOM 8-A, consists of Switlik's new underarm flotation device (UFD), an inflatable pylon and a sea anchor packed in a soft pack valise.Uponreleasing the one-touch buckle and pulling an easy to grab red handle on the valise, the unit will inflate and fall to the water, detaching from the boat to stay with the victim. There is a failsafe to ensure both the UFD and Pylon inflate once fired off.When inflated, the ballasted Locator Pylon has a 6-foot waterline height. Located on top of the pylon is a water-activated, lithium-powered, flashing light with 5 years of life. The light can be seen nearly one nautical mile away under normal night conditions. The pylon has 2 SOLAS reflective panels to aid the boat's search.Tethered to the horseshoe and the pylon is a 16" diameter, ballasted, self-opening Sea Anchor to reduce downwind drift keeping the victim in the same position as when they went overboard.

  • The Manover board MOM 8 gives you time to return to the victim in a safe and prepared manner. 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 Underarm Flotation Device will keep the victim afloat, while the pylon fitted with reflective tape and an LED light provides excellent visibility. The weighted sea anchor will ensure that the victim remains in the same location. With the durable lifting straps, getting a victim back on board becomes easy. 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 Underarm Flotation Device.With the MOM 8-A the only focus is on pulling a single pin. Located on the top of the canister is a deployment handle, which when pulled, releases the bottom of the canister and allows the inflatable devices to automatically inflate while falling into the water. Buy the extension kit for a wider vertical gap between railings for mounting.
