Falls Overboard Protection

Wireless Engine Shut Off Systems and Alarms

Virtual Lifeline and CAST are the award winning "wireless engine shut off systems" everyone is talking about and are the only ones available today. This highly acclaimed technology provides everyone falls overboard protection without the hassles caused by old school tethers or proximity devices.

VL and Cast wireless lanyard systems meet or exceed ABYC standards for Emergency Cut-Off Devices (ABYC A-33).


Virtual Lifeline

Virtual Lifeline (VL) (Patented) provides "falls overboard" protection for everyone on board. Each person (pets too!) wears a small, durable, reusable sensor. Upon submersion the sensor immediately activates— sending a signal to the onboard control module, which sounds an alarm and shuts off the motor.

Available in Standard Mount and Helm Mount in multiple configurations we have you covered for whatever your application demands.

Also available in an alarm only version. This configuration is great for docks and pool side applications.

CAST “wireless lanyard” IS BACK!

You may remember, we phased out the CAST image to bring consistency in branding for the “recreational” market with the Virtual Lifeline image. Recently, we’ve had numerous requests for systems and/or sensors with the angler image. Using our 5th Anniversary as the platform, it just made sense to bring back this very special look.

Not only are we re-launching CAST, but we’re reducing the price through 2009. Until December 31, 2009 you can purchase CAST at the special price of $299.00 each. After that, the price will return to $399.00 each. We’ve also reactivated the CAST web site, which is being updated on a daily basis.

If you have any questions, or if we can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to call at your earliest convenience!

Again, thank you for your past support and have a great summer!
