My name is Daniel Mondou, a young Canadian inventor who developed the fastest and safest way to rescue a man overboard with a boat that sails between 5 and 10 knots.
Here is the story of the project
After completing a boating training in which I practiced recovering a man overboard with a full crew on a small sailboat, I soon realized that, in reality, several elements could stretch time and hinder the success of rescues.
* Stress (when it is no longer an exercise);
* Reduced crew (usually two);
* The size of the boat that makes it slow to maneuver;
* The complexity of the boat that makes it difficult to maneuver to a person;
* The time of human reaction;
* Task sharing(are you seen falling).
Confronted by this reality, I set myself the goal of designing a device that would easily allow anyone to rescue a man overboard. On a small boat or a large sailboat, with a small crew or a crew separated by tasks, my device was to make it possible to perform quick and simple rescues at all times. It also had to react instantly to perform rescues faster than conventional techniques allow with a full crew.
After several prototypes, several patent applications and several technical tests, NEPTUNE'S HAND was able to demonstrate its potential by allowing apprentice boaters to perform several sail rescues, on boats over 30 feet, in less than a minute. Some rescues were even made in less than 17 seconds.

I also invite you to talk about the fundraising campaign on your social networks to promote the birth of a product from here.
The KICKSTARTER campaign is currently online and will officially start on January 21, 2021 to fund the specialized tooling needed for production. As a thank you, KICKSTARTER contributors will be able to get this beautiful product at manufacturing cost during the funding period.
All contributions are required for the launch to work. In addition, I would like to hear your comments to make the project evolve as much as possible.
Thank you for your cooperation. Together, let's build the future.
