LIGHT AND SMOKE SIGNAL
The Comet Light and Smoke Lifebuoy Marker features 15
minutes of dense orange smoke and a self-activated lighting
system which far exceeds SOLAS requirements for light
output and duration. It is mounted on a ships bridge wing
with the bracket supplied and is attached by line to a
Lifebuoy. The signal is used to mark the position of a man
overboard by day or night. It can be automatically deployed
by releasing the attached Lifebuoy, or manually activated.
