Oh No Another Killcord Incident in UK

Still, good lesson for all WEAR YOUR KILLCORD

I have to add, have been really amazed to note the number of people on the Solent who don't! (Ribnet members excluded off course )

We've just sold a boat to somebody affected by this. Apparently 4 boats were struck by this one, before the RNLI were on scene. We are told the chap got his life jacket caught around throttle and it threw him out. He was in the water for 15 mins with it circling him until he managed to swim to one of the boats he struck.

Our customer's boat was written off. 3 others damaged.
