The MOM-600 is a fantastic device for crew recovery. If someone falls overboard you can toss it to them and it will auto-inflate. Boarding is simple, [youtube=http://youtu.be/uJyCSLPkxsE] you just use the internal life lines to pull yourself up on to the device. Once the victim is onboard the MOM-600 he (and we all know why there are more men overboard than women) can just climb back on to your vessel. This is especially important if you don’t have the lifting equipment and the headroom needed to recover a victim using products like the LifeSling.
The MOM-600 comes in two models with the only difference being the inflatable pylon. They only weigh 15 pounds and have a packed size of 17″ x 17″ x 3½”.
