Insurance approved advance tow system

This system alerts crews ahead of problems becoming an incident, and allows more
favourable insurance terms, allowing yachts to tow at night, further distances and in
more extreme conditions. Featuring a robust VHF based telemetry link backed up by
Iridium between tender and yacht. Crews can monitor the tender on and off tow on a
private network. Constant monitoring of the tender include Battery level, Bilge Level,
Bilge Pump activity, Pitch, Yaw and Roll.
