Our old boat had the usual horseshoe buoy with a light on a lanyard situated on the pushpit. For our coastal sailing needs i made the assumption that this would be more than sufficient.
However we sold the yacht and have a nice new one to fit out.
Now it would seem as if a horseshoe buoy is not really the best way of dealing with a MOB.
For coastal day sailing, with the occasional longer passage, surely a floating sling on a floating line is a better system?
I am not going to invest in more than one system initially, so can I please have your learned opinions please?
