Comments about Inflatable Overboard Pole:
MOB poles are a key safety device. All it takes is a couple MOB drills in real weather to realize just how easy it is to lose sight of the crewmember. However, like everything, its all about maintenance -- and this one's recharge kit is cheap -- meaning you can actually practice deploying it.
