Prepared for serving crew members as an effective way to help if someone goes overboard, the 'Guardian' ship lifeboat is outfitted with a number of safety features.
Designed by Corban Warrington, the 'Guardian' works by being tossed in the water when someone goes overboard. The design begins to fill with water, which activates the automatic inflation of the lifeboat raft. After the inflation has completed, the 'Guardian' lifeboat is ready to be used as something for the person in the water to hang on to or get inside of.
The 'Guardian' ship lifeboat is outfitted with an LED strobe light on the top portion to alert nearby rescuers of the boat's location. The 'Guardian' also features an Automatic Identification System (AIS) to allow crew members to locate the vessel at any time.
