    Switlik MOM 8-S Man Overboard Module


    • Designed as a lighter, smaller version of the MOM 8-A, the compact MOM™ 8-S includes Switlik's new Underarm Flotation Device (UFD), inflatable pylon with drogue and soft-pack storage valise
    • Rigged for manual activation, the MOM 8-S inflates quickly by pulling red handle on top of storage valise
    • Failsafe ensures both the UFD and pylon inflate once deployed
    • Inflatable flotation device (UFD) provides 35 lbs of buoyancy and can be used multiple times
    • Once inflated, ballasted locator pylon has height of 6 ft. above water's surface
    • Pylon has SOLAS reflective panels and water-activated flashing light at top
    • Lithium battery-powered flashing light can be seen up to (1) nautical mile under normal conditions
    • Ballasted, self-opening 16" dia. drogue tethered to UFD and pylon reduces downwind drift
    • Soft-pack Herculite® storage valise is resistant to abrasion, mildew and UV exposure
    • Mount: The soft case has a lacing system for attachment
      • Unit mounts securely to stern pulpit and includes quick-disconnect buckle
      • The ideal location is at the intersections of vertical and upper horizontal pieces of the pulpit rail
        • However, if hull design or fittings on the transom impede the free deployment of the MOM into the water, installation on the quarter is possible
        • Mounting will work with either a rail or a lifeline
