On the harness attachment of my crewsaver lifejacket - works great just about all the time unless I'm leaning forward and turning wheel, at which point it can get wrapped around the steering wheel a couple of times. Since it's attached to the harness, maybe that's a good thing cos if it's strong enough, it may even keep me from going overboard

Since I have a 4hp Suzuki aux engine, that strangely came with an identical kill cord to the main engine, so I leave it attached to the aux engine all the time when I am out.... if I went over and there was someone else on board, they could either start the aux, or relocate the kill cord to the main engine controls, and use that instead.

Get a bit of 8mm rope, put a big loop into it so it will go over your head and one arm so it's across your body. Put a small loop in the other end, about 500-600mm from the main loop. Clip the kill-cord to it and leave it connected. Take it off and tie it to the throttle control when not in use. It never got in the way yet. It works well for women too!
