If you're not sure what the red dangly cord is for...

Or you are, but need a little reminder to encourage you to use it then this is worth watching:

BBC News - Victoria Milligan's safety 'kill cord' plea after speedboat deaths


For anyone who missed the detailed report on the accident it is here:

There are numerous threads on here discussing alternative solution - but for most users in almost all circumstances firmly attaching the kill cord around your upper leg, or securely to your life jacket is a very effective precaution.
