Fox 40 Marine Now On Duty


For Immediate Release

HAMILTON, ONTARIO (March 20, 2003) — True to the Fox 40 tradition of innovative design and engineering excellence, Fox 40 Marine Division has unveiled the two most ergonomically designed and long awaited marine safety products ever seen in the boating industry – the Boat Safety Kit and the Water Safety Throw.

These two pieces were intended to fit a niche that needed to be filled in personal boats and watercrafts. The shells of both items are made of polyethylene and meet Coast Guard requirements.

The Water Safety Throw is a superior alternative to fabric throw bags, heaving lines and ring buoys. The blow-molded construction features an integrated handle and is more visible and easier to grasp because of the textured outer body. There is 50' of premium-quality polypropylene braided floating rope that has 900 lbs of breaking strength.

It is intended for rescue purposes. This can include use by lifeguards, boaters, kayakers and all other water-related activities.

The Boat Safety Kit is a premium four-in-one package that offers the watercraft bailer, a floating marine flashlight, the traditional pealess Fox 40 whistle with lanyard and 50' of safety rope with a float.

The bailer is an extra large two litre shell with an elliptical shape and fits neatly in the bottom of any boat. The mirror decal on the inside lid can be used for daytime emergency signaling. The yellow flashlight is compact and has all the features that boaters need – high-intensity Krypton bulb, cushioned, shock-resistant casing with a non-slip grip.

The Fox 40 pealess whistle never fails – simple as that. The flawless performance has made our whistle the preferred choice for personal safety. The whistle comes with a break-away lanyard.
