Sadly, after the padstow tragedy last year, we know there is just no excuse not to use a kill cord, whatever the situation (the other console leavers won't help either)

Are we having a proper ribnet court session or not ?

Looks as if it is a jet drive boat and the lever on the left is for the control for the gearbox which isnt in gear so it would indicate the boat is not underway. The other lever looks as if it is a joy stick for quick close manouvering which goes hand in hand with the jet. Agree, image is everything and in hindsight he should have made a point of putting the killcord around his wrist for all to see. I must say, the angle of the killcord does look as if it is connect to his leg.Alan P

Thank you

All I was trying to point out is that we should not jump to conclusions based on a photograph/screenshot.

I now rest my case

It's a BRP (Evinrude) binnacle, I know they do a small jet drive outboard, but not an inboard that would have separate controls for the bucket.

RNLI do use spring loaded throttles - their reason being that a kill cord could easily kill the engine at just the wrong moment by accident.
