The ULB Marine Rescue Pod contains a platform that provides enough flotation to support 3-4 persons. The pod automatically inflates when dropped into water and are re-usable and re-packable by using a replacement CO2 inflation system. They are fitted with an automatic SOLAS light for night rescue, SOLAS grade high visibility retro-reflective tape, and can include a large sea anchor and a Shark Shield.
