i thought the RNLI dont use killcords (SIB's). Or they didnt when I did a few courses for them? Apparently the party line was " there will allways be someone else on the boat if the coxwain falls over board"

idea is that they also dont want the engine to stop at a critical time perhaps in surf conditions should it activate accidently ,,,what happens if they all go over the side ,,just hope throttles return to tickover when if let go ,,,

Ah. brings back memorys , when we were going up a a large wave the mercury switches would shut down the engines , so helmsman would steer through the surf and crew would have both fingers on the start buttons, the good old old days needlees to say they soon changed that arangement

Mrs willk tends to phone at critical boating moments too. Her ringtone is The Imperial March from Star Wars, so always good for a giggle
