Jimmy Green 3 Piece Offshore Danbuoy, manufactured from lightweight but robust tapered GRP tubes, cylindrical encapsulated float, plastic dipped lead weight and lightweight high visibility flag

This danbuoy can be fitted with a Jimmy Green/ACR Automatic Danbuoy Light

The Jimmy Green 3 Piece Telescopic Offshore Danbuoy features:

  • 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 attaching to e.g. a lifebuoy
  • Easily extended telescopic rods, three extensions make it compact for long term storage
  • 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
  • Sturdy tip for fitting ACR light

The Jimmy Green 3 Piece Offshore Danbuoy can comply with RORC requirements if it is:
fully extended with flag deployed
fitted with working automatic fixed light
attached via 3 metres floating rope to a lifebuoy complete with retroreflective tape, drogue and whistle

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 carefully collapsing the 3 pieces, the flag fits inside the middle tube for protection from the elements while stowed

Stowed Length 1.2 metres
Extended Length overall 3.25 metres

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


  1. preventing the flag from being blown out 
  2. protecting the float against UV degradation 
  3. locating the danbuoy to e.g. stanchion, pushpit
