Among the novelties on display are cutting-edge FELL Marine and Sea-Tags safety products. According to the US Coast Guard,
there were over 4000 boating accidents in the US with 600 untimely deaths in 2014 alone. The Fell Marine and Sea-Tags MOB
have put design and technology at the center of their product development and hope to reduce these tragic statistics.
The hi-tech Fell Marine MOB+ (Man OverBoard) is packed with features to enhance safety and make the inconvenient and seldom
used cord-based systems obsolete by wirelessly stopping the boat engine if one falls overboard.
The MOB+ accessories are crafted to ensure boaters enjoy wearing
the hi-tech safety FOBs without compromising their own style, look
and comfort. At the same time, Fell Marine employs the proprietary
WiMEA Protocol with lightning-fast reaction time, 4D Antenna Diversity,
AutoMOB, state-of-the-art electronics and UniqueID technology to stop
the boat without interfering with existing systems onboard.
The MOB+ base unit can be installed in seconds on literally any boat
or engine configuration with simple, plug-and-play connections. The
AutoMOB would then automatically shut off the engine if the boater wearing or carrying the FOB falls over board and allows the engine to
be restarted after 6 seconds. The highest quality materials that withstand salt, cold and the sun have been used to make MOB+ devices
durable in the harsh marine environments.
"We are very proud to be representing the Fell Marine and Sea-Tags hi-tech and life-saving products in Canada," said Robin Martel,
president of Northport Systems, parent company of Fugawi. "FELL Marine and Sea-Tags´s missions are to create products that contribute
