I like the idea as a secondary safety item. Trying to troll-fish while tethered using a downrigger's a pain and so often I have to unplug myself from the engine tether. Would like a longer range though.

if the boats only 3m (from your details) how much can't you reach with the kill cord on?

You shouldn't move around the boat with the engine on and in gear without the kill cord in position that's the whole point of it, to kill the engine when you are out of reach of the controls.

If your engine is so poor that you can't rely on it to re start, you really need to get it looked at, if it's all tickety boo and starts all the time, why not pull the kill cord off do what you need to, then re attach it.

On a 3m SIB?
Just get a longer kill cord?

Actually - if you hang on a minute someone will come along who has just invented one.

I don't fish. But if I understand down riggers correctly you have a heavy pole attached to boat, with ?wire of known length down to a heavy weight then the tackle beyond the weight. Is this correct?

If so why does the red dangly get it the way? Where do you attach it. Where is the down rigger etc. I'll be the collective have a solution that doesn't mean disconnecting...

Oh and I read that down rigging has its dangers because if the wire if it snags an obstruction you can flip boat. I'd want my KC in for that. Sure a WiFi solution sounds good but still to easy to have left it in the dry bag or the cag pocket that you just took off coz it was too hot...

But a longer kill cord mightn't disengage quickly enough, you could be in the water heading towards the prop and the engine still running....

@nightfisher, Probably already thought of but maybe link the electronic kill switch to activate automatically when it's submerged, same as the life vests, in case you took a knock on the way out ...

Am not a fisherman, so the idea of standing in the bow of a 3m SIB
with an OB - (locked off in the straight ahead position I would hope)
- and running at trolling speed, doesnt appeal to me.
Bass boats I have seen with spring foot throttle controls at the bow
- press for power - release - no power, but in an inflatable, at 3m long,
I would be keeping the kill cord length so it was taught
while fishing in the bow
and probably route it through something as simple as a stainless
steel ring fastened to the bench seat, or attached to the side of the tube.
That way if I came out backwards from the bow
the slack in the cord would be taken out by the ring and the OB killed.
Personally - I would ALWAYS want to have control
of the tiller in an under way SIB, even one going that slowly.
