Be Seen

The bright colour and height of the SeeArch make you highly visible to rescuers.

Be Rescued

A story that could save your life

I spend a lot of time on the water and I've had my share of close calls. Years ago, I met a sailor who told me a story of his own misadventure. While sailing across Lake Ontario he had fallen overboard. He was wearing a pfd but his boat was sailing away and he was far from shore. The coastguard was alerted after his boat was seen crashing into the shore. A search ensued and luckily one of the crew spotted his frantically waving arms.

He was extremely fortunate but I was left wondering what if the coast guard hadn't seen him? Every year, water sport enthusiasts are lost at sea. Finding a person in the water, even in calm conditions, can be extremely difficult.

I began sketching ideas for a device that could increase a person's visibility in the water. This device would need to be compatible with a PFD* while adding buoyancy and would need to be with you all of the time, so it would have to be easy to wear. 

And most importantly, it would need to make you visible to rescuers.

The task was not easy. After many prototypes, hours of testing, and  consultations with the Coast Guard, engineers, designers, friends and sailors, we found the answer. The answer is the SeeArch.
