Man Over Board System

I have been looking at Man Overboard systems for a while after I was single handing through a long tunnel and was struck by the thought that if I was to fall off the back of the boat, the boat would just keep going without me.

Originally I was looking at the classic lanyard operated kill switch, but was not convinced being attached to the boat with a lanyard was going to be practical, and it would require remembering to attach the lanyard to be effective. I recently came across a wireless MOB system that seems to answer most of these issues and could be in use all the time not just for tunnels.

I am working with Hybrid Marine to ensure we can interface with the hybrid system aand plan to fit this over the winter.
