Exactly. As for the I can't remember to put it on excuse.
Well you remember to:
Check the weather forecast
Check the bung is in
Check the telltale is working
Ensure you have enough fuel
Put your lifejacket on
Do a radio check on your VHF
Remember to untie from the pontoon.
If you manage that lot how hard can it be to put the kill cord round your leg.
