Just putting the boat to bed for the night , went to remove the spare kill cord from the grab rail ( you know the one we keep handy in case we are in the briny and our crew want to restart the engine and pick up the mob ) , and the b****y thing snapped with no great strain on it whatsoever !
It's been covered before , but kill cords can vary in quality , or may get damaged or may simply age . Perhaps give 'em a check over now and again , and if in any doubt , replace . Safe ribbing All ! Bern
