Hope the following Kill Cord training tips are useful.
Regularly test your Kill CordCheck for knick and cuts
Dont use spurious solid plastic cords.They break and crack !
Wear the cord around your leg or on a secure (metal) buckle on your lifejacket..not on the wrist where it can slip off.
When leaving the boat to go for lunch, remove the kilcord so that you cannot restart the boat without having to conciously re-connect the cord. We always leave it on our leg and shove the loose (engine) end into a trousers pocket.
If stopped at sea with the engine running (in Neutral!!!) and you need to remove the cord to move down the boat, first wrap the cord around the steering wheel or throttle so that you cannot inadvertantly move off with no cord attached to a Coxswain.
