Jimmy Green Coastal Danbuoy Facts and Features:

  • Easy extension and compression
  • 2 piece telescopic design 
  • Sleek tapered GRP rods
  • Plastic coated lead weight providing excellent counterbalance, preventing the danbuoy from being blown flat.
  • Rubber boot to protect the deck.
  • Modular float for easy repair and replacement in the event of UV degradation
  • 3 metres of LIROS 16 plait Hollowbraid multifilament polypropylene floating line for ease of attaching to a lifebuoy
  • High visibility orange flag, made from lightweight rip stop nylon, approximately 2 metres above sea level
  • 25mm Retro reflective tape above and below the flag


Overall Length:

  • Stowed = 1.52 metres
  • Extended = Overall 2.93 metres


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.
