Inversion proofing?

i have recently aquired a zap cat hull and fitted it with a mariner 50 2 stroke, as i spend alot of my time running between islands in greece and can be quite a way off the coast with little to no other traffic around i was looking into inversion proofing the engine, similar to RNLI ILB lifeboats, as far as i can tell, each carb would require a drain (not difficult0 spare plugs carried (not difficult) but i believe there is also some sort of tilt switch fitter in order to cut the engine out past 90 degrees and stop the engine sucking in water? any experience with this would be appreciated and what kind of switch would be required, would a salvaged tilt switch off a motorcycle suffice or would i need to buy/build something special?
thanks in advance
