Rib Trip Gopro

Here is a video from the other day. i took out the gopro and took the boat for a spin. this was on the northwest arm in haliofax and the gopro is mounted on top of the outboard,

This is with a 9.9hp on i and looking at getting a 25hp for the boat.

What size of Zod is it? Goes well with the 9.9hp!

An observation, I see that you clip the killcord to your wrist. There is a school of thought that suggests the leg is a more secure attachment point as the excess spiral around your wrist can allow the hand to slip free of the cord and not deploy the killswitch in the event of an MOB situation.

killcord on wrist is much better for tiller steer . But don't just clip it around , use some sort of wrist strap which it appears he has although it did slip on quite easily 6mm bungee cord is great iether tied in a loop or with a grip toggle . Divers wrist lanyard is also good .

Nice video, but I have a question about the motor. Are you twisting the throttle to keep the engine running?
