Oh, Danny Buoy
SOS Dan Buoy | $300
Man overboard! SOS Marine’s Dan Buoy is an alternative to life rings. The purse-sized pouch is easy to throw and self-activates within seconds of getting wet. The Dan Buoy inflates into a fluorescent-yellow pole standing 6.5 feet above the water. It’s marked with SOLAS reflective tape and topped with an 8-foot yellow ribbon visible up to a mile away. A drogue keeps the buoy drifting with the person, who can grab onto its web loops or use the attached whistle. The lightweight, reusable Dan Buoy comes in two sizes.
