Neil DarrochInventor Neil Darroch shows SeaArch at TIBS

The Canadian Safe Boating Council’s Marine Industry Award (CASBA) recognizes a company that has introduced a product to improve boating safety. Friends, family and colleagues gathered at the National Yacht Club Sunday evening to recognize excellence in safe boating initiatives and the SeeArch team was happy to be part of the celebration. Neil Darroch, Michael Homer, and William Truderung were awarded the Marine Industry Award at CASBA's annual gala on Sunday, January 19th, 2020 for their innovative marine safety device - the SeeArch.

As a boater, with over 30 years experience, Neil Darroch has seen his share of misadventure and near tragedy at sea. A day on the water can change in an instant. If you fall overboard, within seconds you are separated from your boat or paddleboard, the water is cold and your head disappears in the waves. Your swift rescue is critical.

SeeArch

Neil recognized that one of the greatest challenges in any overboard situation is finding the person in the water and he invented the SeeArch to improve their chances of survival. With his partners he developed the first marker and rescue device that goes where you go so that rescuers spot you quickly and get you back to safety. Over a decade of rigorous and thoughtful engineering, product testing and research has resulted in an award winning marker and rescue device that will improve water safety, for sailors, boaters, paddlers, and all water enthusiasts.

Designed to be worn comfortably around your waist, a simple pull of the cord deploys the five-foot high, marine yellow arch helping rescuers find you in the water. Its buoyancy complements your PFD, helping keep you afloat and its design aids rescuers in getting you back on board.

The SeeArch is available online at www.seearch.ca and through Salus Marine retailers.

Luxury TaxOur industry needs everyone to raise their voice in opposition to the ill-considered Liberal Luxury Tax proposal.

The NMMA has shared results from the American introduction of a luxury tax in the early 1990s and the data should help persuade our government that this will be ineffective and overall, damaging to the industry and negative to their tax revenues.
