CrewWatcher MOB


The Weems & Plath CrewWatcher man overboard system is an app-based alarm that works like a virtual lifeline. It’s made up of a smartphone app and a small beacon that’s worn by each crewmember. The system triggers automatically when someone falls off the boat — sounding an alarm, providing latitude and longitude coordinates of the MOB event, and documenting the time it occurred. The system also visually guides the rescuer. $89.99. Weems & Plath Annapolis, Maryland, (410) 263-6700.
