While we love to think we are invincible, occasionally things happen to shake us out of blissful complacency. When at the marina or club, we invariably hear a crazy tale of recklessness, a man overboard, and sometimes even tragedy. Thanks to our relationship with Fell Marine, Sea Tow members can feel safe and assured knowing they are ready for any situation.
FELL is the leading developer and manufacturer of marine electronics that specialize in wireless safety technology. Meaning “Mountain” in Old Norse, their Norwegian maritime culture and heritage is reflected in their core values: innovation, quality and courage. It is by living these values they create products that contribute to enhanced maritime safety and value. Innovation lead FELL to create WiMEA, a new standard for engine cutoff devices. Unique wireless technologies, quality materials and ease of use come together to become your personal lifeguard.
In addition to ensuring you have enough life jackets and the required equipment onboard, your boat’s emergency engine cutoff is the most overlooked item to check for before leaving the dock. It’s a simple device that may save your life if you fall overboard while underway. Check out this link to learn how to use the device and why you should always wear one.
If you find yourself not wearing a traditional cutoff cord because you find it inconvenient and uncomfortable, Fell Marine has the solution. Makers of the MOB+, a wireless version of the engine cutoff makes it much easier for the captain and passengers to be protected. To better understand how critical it is to wear one, read the Fell Marine BLOG and experience how the Good Company Fishing Team has been using this product.
Laws requiring the emergency cutoff switch vary by state, be sure to check with your local authorities before leaving the dock.
