What people say

The Mobmat is a simple-to-use man overboard recovery device that meets the MCA regulations for equipment of this kind. Most importantly, it enables recovery of an unconscious or injured person, which is unfortunately a realistic scenario and one that is often not considered when equipping a vessel. It is one of the most effective and best value systems of its kind and should be considered essential equipment for every vessel going offshore”.

'Well we went around the World successfully and never used the Mobmat but we were constantly delighted we had it.'

Quote from Peter Forbes after completing his round the world circumnavigation aboard his boat Carang

'I have received my Mobmat and I must congratulate you on designing something so simple and practical.  I have a Halberg Rassy 54 and have been worried about getting an Mob back on board for a long time because of the high freeboard. Of all the ideas I have considered, this is the most sensible and easiest to rig.'
