Re: Wear Your Killcord!

I have rescued people who fell out of their running dinghies on two separate occasions, but I think I only tried the kill cord once when I was breaking in the 18 hp outboard in Malaysia--GPS said 32 knots. I have gotten more conservative in my old age. Just last week I wore a helmet and a seat belt racing landsailors in the desert at way more than 32 knots. Proabably a good thing, as I cracked the helmet and still have the imprint of the seat belt on my hips...

I'd offer to clip it on her myself.

Re: Wear Your Killcord!

I deleted the picture of the girl.
Now while I admit she was stunning, it may have also been offensive to our fairer members.
Let's not post things that we wouldn't show or Daughters or Mothers if you will, that way there is no question.

Re: Wear Your Killcord!

Hi, I have to admit that I have never once worn the kill cord. Also when I first read the post I thought "here we go, another over the top Ohs comment" but then I start thinking about it. Yesterday I decided to try it, a whole 1/2 second to attach it to my wrist. So, I stand corrected in regards to my intial reaction to reading the post. It's really a no brainer, it's easy to use and really it's about being responsible .
Thanks MF you got me thinking for the better.
Cheers Dale .

Re: Wear Your Killcord!

I would advise wearing one while taking a pee over the side in your dink.
