As of March 31, 2021, a new nationwide law requires boat operators to wear an engine cut-off device for boats 26 feet or less while operating on plane or above displacement speed. This law was approved by Congress to enhance the safety of recreational boating across the United States.

Fell Tech's MOB+ and 1st Mate systems are designed to help boaters comply with this regulation, ensuring a safer and more enjoyable experience on the water. Both systems meet the American Boat & Yachting Council's A-33 standard for Engine Cut-off Devices and comply with all federal and state boating laws.

MOB+, Fell Tech's Wireless Man-Overboard System, utilizes a wireless key fob worn by the boat operator to ensure a secure connection with the boat. In case of a man overboard event, the system swiftly detects the situation and shuts down the engine, preventing potential accidents and injuries.

1st Mate, developed in collaboration with Mercury Marine, is an innovative Marine Safety & Security System that provides engine-integrated man overboard detection, theft deterrent features, and vessel sharing capabilities. With an easy-to-use app and advanced key fob, the system ensures a secure and seamless boating experience.

By integrating MOB+ and 1st Mate systems into your boating routine, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that you are not only complying with the latest safety regulations but also taking proactive steps to protect yourself, your passengers, and your vessel.
