Lifecord onboard


It’s easy to be distracted while afloat and unfortunately, as a result it's far too easy to forget to connect your kill cord, especially after performing tasks on the boat such as pulling in an anchor or fenders, reeling in a fish, or perhaps a change of pilot at sea, while often the preference is leaving the engine ticking over in neutral rather than to turn it off altogether.


A Motor Boat & Yachting magazine readers’ poll indicated that 83% of boat users admitted they had forgotten at some point to connect their kill cord.  If you and your family get thrown from a moving boat without the kill cord connected, the consequences are potentially disastrous. With no one aboard, the boat has a tendency to circle out of control and at speed, closing in on both the crew in the water and other people or boats nearby, putting lives in grave danger. Such tragedies have been well publicised and are horrific for all concerned.

Lifecord ensures its connection is unforgettable, keeping you and your family safer on the water. It detects connection to the boat’s kill switch and then simultaneously senses connection to the pilot. Should the latter not be made, it emits an audible and visual alarm every ten seconds, quietly at first as a gentle reminder, then increasing in volume so that it’s audible when you're not connected, even when on the plane with the wind in your hair and the noise of a hefty 4 stroke astern!
