Why even bother with the plug, put a SIM card in the EMM or use Bluetooth. You could even incorporate a tracker into the EMMwith remote disabling.

Some of the clever chaps that mess with land rovers have added electronics so they can turn things on and off using a mobile so it should be possible

Sub Woofer Stereos - Done
Tapered Tubes - Done
LED Nav Lights – Done
Amphibious RIBs (i.e. Sea Legs) – Done
Through Hull LED Lights – Done (ashamed to say that I quite like that idea)
Wireless Kill Cord - Done

Have I missed anything?
What else could I do to “pimp” my rib?
Has anyone got any bright ideas they want to share?

I have often wondered what would happen if I filled my tubes with Helium to make the RIB lighter – if you hear a loud bang followed by a mushroom cloud you’ll know things didn’t go well!

Any suggestions gratefully received!
Surely with an already well spec'd Boat your time may be better spent planning on Where,and Less about the What..Afterall is'nt it all about getting out and useing the things?..
