Guys as some of you might know (u xbajtu tit**jku fuq ogget li seta kellu konsegwenzi serji hafna) yesterday on our way out i was sitting on the side of my boat and at one moment i just fell back ending up in the water. Luckily enough i wasnt on my own as perla165 and his dad were with me. I must say i am very lucky that this happened when i wasnt on my own as very bad consequences could have happened.

I have heard that there are some sort of devices which you wear on your wrist and has a wireless connection to a base station that could be set, that if one is on his own and fell overboard the engine stops running after the boat moves away 5m from the person in the sea. Has anyone of you heard of these devices ?? I have tried searching on westmarine and ebay but didnt find what i am looking for.

Thanks guys Smiley

Bigboy, the Autotheter (first link from Shanook) can be used with both outboard an inboard.

In your case all you have to do is install a generic killswitch on your inboard which should not be that difficult. eg. http://www.bobsmachine.com/products/controls_safety.cfm
http://www.colehersee.com/pdf/hot_feed/D-592_cutoff.pdf

You can then either just use the lanyard or a wireless system like the autotheter. If you need any further explanation don't hesitate to ask.

its true they were origiannly invented to be used instead of the lanyard. But there is an additional switch (looks like the switch of the outboard motor) and this breaks the contact and kills ur engine. So they are and can be used on an inboard engine

benri thats just the kill switch that bigboy will have to add to his wireing, the wireless device that operates the kill switch is the autotether. So with the wireless device and that switch u can be safe if u fall overboard

U need something else bigboy. Your boat is quite high so u have to have something hanging on the side to go up. Try to make something that is easy to climb up as u never know if u get hurt when u fall. and in winter a 20 minutes swim will take a lot out of u
