His and Hers Autopilot Controls

Phyllis and I have done a couple of crew overboard recovery drills lately (with more planned) and one of the many things we learned was that a wrist remote autopilot control is extremely useful in a COB emergency.

But what happens if the person wearing the only control is the one who went over the side? So now we have two. Highly recommended.

More on COB prevention and recovery.

I wonder what the Bluetooth range is? Fall overboard, hit tack, the boat heaves to, swim back, & climb aboard all before the off watch crew gets their fouies on. Even better if you’re solo. Probably better to rely on tethers though.
