Video QuickTip: The RescueStreamer


The RescueStreamer is a relatively inexpensive, compact and effective signaling device that makes it easier for rescuers home in on a boater in distress (it’s also effective for land-based emergencies). Available in 4 versions, the RescueStreamer can be attached to a PFD or stowed in a ditch bag or glove compartment. In use, the bright-orange streamer unrolls to create a long, highly visible target that can be seen from over a mile away. Also, unlike a flare, it never stops working.

The streamers come in 4 models ranging from 24 to 40 feet. Keep in mind that they are only effective in daylight, except for the Nightblazer model, which is equipped with light tubes.
