What a great idea! Why did I spend all of that money on the SIB and motor? I could have purchased the Orka kit. This is just like my car except mine is red and this has tinted glass. Lovely whale tail and fin (with integral aerial). What a shame it is not available any more. Can you imagine that 25HP motor and Aerotec tucked away in the back with petrol tank, lifejackets AND a passenger in the back! There were those who doubted, but no roofrack is needed after all! Will be up and running on Jan 2nd. Powerboat II course is also booked now.

It has a little red switch and I think the kill cord somehow fits into this area and switches it off. Some kill switches are a U shaped and some are a key ring shaped.

I think your outboard if tiller steer will have the standard Mercury/Mariner arrangement as in the image below in which case you'll need this kill cord...

Quicksilver Mercury/Mariner Stop Switch Lanyard (Kill cord)

Worth getting the genuine Quicksilver as above... they are better made than the half price generic ones.

If its a sprung round button that pulls out 3mm the the u slides behind it and holds it out. That's common to Honda.

Mariner I think usually use a toggle switch that a 0 shape goes over before flicking the toggle closed against a piece of plastic. Pulling cord flicks the toggle to release the 0.

If you expect to use multiple boats you can get a multi fitting cord from eBay. But the eBay ones at best are red plastic over a cord core. At worst hollow red plastic. The Red looses plasticiser in UV light, cracks and fails when u tug it really hard...

REPORT: Hi HDAV. All is on target for my first SIB trip on 2 Jan at Hayling Island harbour. Thanks for asking. Before I tell you about the VHF, celebrate with me as I passed Powerboat Level 2 today with Hayling Sea School! I passed the VHF exam two weeks ago and bought a Standard Horizon HX870 with DSC which is great as it also has GPS, long and lat, compass, knots, man overboard and waypoints.


I thought the VHF exam online by the YHA was excellent. I spent about 5 Sunday mornings for an hour and a half or so studying it with time in between. The online course I think is the same whatever provider you do it with. I did mine with STS (Sea Training Sussex) and the exam near Pevensey Bay. I just went through it on line, using a laptop (you need speaker and microphone to record Mayday etc.). A bit faffy to set up at the beginning but once installed (you download it), it is good and has won software awards. I found the book filled in the gaps (they send you the YHA book). It didn't really come together with the Mayday, Panpan and other calls until the last session, but come together it did. You do practice scenarios and when ready, a pre-exam test which you have 3 goes at and have to get I think above 80 or 85% (not quite sure). Mine cost 65 I think. For the exam itself (costs 60 pounds) I only got one question wrong which was about an aircraft.
The examiner was a river boat policeman on the Thames so that was helpful to ask questions at the end.


Just bought a BST12HP pump also and a battery for the pump and outboard, probably not the right one to start the electric starter motor but hopefully it will work.
