IM CEO and sailor Adrian Stanway says, “A man overboard situation happens more often than you think. A simple trip on some deck clutter; a knock from the boom; leaning back on a lifeline that snaps. Suddenly someone’s in the water." “The problem is that even at quite low speeds, the boat can be 500 yards from the person in less than a minute. The remaining crew just cannot see the person at that distance and against the background of waves. It’s always life threatening and sadly, often fatal."
