Abstract

The buoy has an electronic lamp flashing periodically and is particularly for use as a distress signal. It comprises a relatively long cylindrical tube (9) with the lamp (3) at one end and a ballast weight at the other (4). Thus when in the water it floats in a stable vertical position with the lamp end at an appreciable height above the water. It can be arranged to be normally stored with the lamp at the bottom, so that it automatically turns the other way up on entering the water, thus automatically starting up the lamp, typically by means of a mercury relay. A ring can be fitted at or below the water line for attachment to a lifebelt.
