The MOM 600™ is a breakthrough in coastal/inshore rescue and man overboard
emergencies. At just 15lb. when packed, take it from boat to boat with ease, and
store it wherever convenient. Thin and light (17" x 17" x 3 1/2" dimensions),
but rock solid in construction, it is vacuum-sealed, which allows for a
five-year service interval. 600lb. of inflated buoyancy with 10.4sq.ft. floor
space and room for up to four people, and includes ballast drogues for added
stability. Features a water-activated strobe light and a 5' pylon provides even
more visibility for rescue teams. The inflation system is easily triggered-just
pull the tab and throw, and the platform automatically inflates as soon as it
hits the water and is ready for you to get aboard quickly. Made in the USA.
