The Jimmy Green Telescopic Offshore Danbuoy Facts, Features and Plus Factors:

  • 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 ripstop nylon, approximately 2 metres above sea level
  • 25mm Retro-reflective tape above and below the flag
  • Sturdy tip for fitting ACR light, please follow instructions


RORC Requirements Advisory

The Jimmy Green Offshore Danbuoy can comply with RORC requirements if it is:

  • fully extended with flag deployed
  • fitted with a working automatic fixed light
  • attached via 3 metres floating rope to a lifebuoy complete with retroreflective tape, drogue and whistle


Jimmy Green 3 piece Telescopic Danbuoy Extension and Stowage

Extend each section with a firm pull - the tapered telescopic parts will then 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 securing with e.g. sellotape, and then carefully collapsing the 3 pieces, the flag fits inside the middle tube for protection from the elements while stowed.

Collapse the top tapered section first, otherwise it is difficult to stow the flag without any unnecessary creasing.

Jimmy Green Danbuoy Advisory

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.



Danbuoy Accessories are available for:

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