Preparation and Stowage
- Once extended the telescopic parts have enough friction to stay up indefinitely
- Collapsing requires holding the top section so the boot is off the ground and giving it a short sharp knock
- By rolling the flag on the tube and collapsing the 2 pieces, the flag fits inside the lower tube for protection from the elements while stowed
A danbuoy is normally the first item deployed in the event of a man overboard incident.
Therefore it should be mounted aft, extended ready, located for quick deployment.
