RYA Kill cord survey

https://www.research.net/s/killcord

Please take a moment or two to answer these questions on kill cords, kill switches and any issues you have had with them.

Thank you

Floatyourboat,

Do you know what the agenda is (there's always an agenda!) and why it's not on an RYA url if it wants rya credibility?

I'd be slightly concerned before answering that with such a directed line of questioning it self selects for people who have had an issue, skewing any stats.

So if I answer "No, neither" do I leave out the rest of the questions, or somehow give the details of every boat I've owned?

Hi Poly, people often report issues to the RYA. The kill cord wearing message has been going for years, but not so much is said about care of kill cords and switches. It's difficult to understand the extent of any switch or kill cord integrity issues without asking the wider public.

Thanks for taking the time to look at the survey.

It's put together on survey monkey which is why it's not an RYA URL.

If it's no neither the info of your current boat would be useful. If nothing else those who haven't had a problem may be down to how the boat is kept or the kind of kill cord used.

Thanks for looking at it though

I maybe wrong but I smell a survey for market research for selling something that isn't needed, like a 100 quid kill cord made of moon dust or something equally as daft.

TBH waste of time filling it in unless someone has had a failure.

Cheers
