Our MOB Drill Equipment.

Our MOB Drill Equipment is available to borrow for free as long as I can use the photographs on my website, social media, magazine articles, books etc.  I will come along with it which means that a) I'll sort out any risk assessments and method statements that your marina will want to have and b) my marine insurance will cover third party liability.

If you are using your own boat you will need to notify your insurer that you are practicing this in a marina and if they have any questions I'll answer them.

Want to do more MOB?  

If so, we have a couple of options for Man Overboard Rescue training, both of which are free.  All I ask is that I can use any photos I take on the website, social media, magazine articles etc.  

Yacht clubs - I can run half day sessions on your yachts as part of your regular sailing weekends.  Why not finish a cruise on Sunday lunchtime and spend the afternoon learning 5 MOB techniques.

Own boat sessions - anything from a few hours to a full day using all the equipment on your yacht. As long as your within a few hours drive of Jct 13 on the M25 I'll come along and you can try anything you want.

If you are interested in trying any of these MOB equipment out yourself then please contact me at MOBManOverboard@gmail.com or use the contact form.  If you have time, can you add some info on if you are a Dayskipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster and if you've done the RYA Sea Survival or the RYA / ISAF Coastal Safety course.
