Randall Parten is an MOB (Person In the Water) expert. In the course of training mainly boating pairs to operate large yachts, he identified a need for a way for them to safely, reliably, and quickly deliver a rescue device to a Person in the Water in a panic/emergent situation. Factors at play include: an unskilled operator left on board to affect the rescue, psychological panic responses, adverse environmental conditions, and the inherent danger of any operating vessel being anywhere near a Person In the Water. Through exhaustive studies of hundreds of MOB cases, innumerable on-the-water trials, and knowledge of typical human panic responses, he has developed a clear understanding of the very specific challenges of that situation, and how to mitigate them. The core of which turns out to be QUICKLY contacting a Victim with a life-saving device, without the risk the Rescue Vessel itself contacting the Victim. Easier said than done.
