Kill Cords

Hi

We are having major problems with genuine Quicksilver Kill Cords at present, they only seem to last us about 2 weeks before they are fully stretched and wont return to their bungee type life.

Anyone got the same problem? or using a better product that last longer?

Is that the cord type ones or the plastic type?

Yamaha ones seem to last well if you change the end.

I agree, the Merciry 'fabric' kill cords dont last very long at all, I took the decision last year to stop using them and we use original yamaha killcords on all our outboards now.

You don't even have to change the end, as the loop of cord which secures the yamaha end fits nicely over the mercury killcord switch (although I always have to point that out to people new to our boats, as they always tell me I have the wrong killcords )
