“A safety tip you might not think you need”
I think most of the boating population pays attention to life jackets, flares, horns, and fire extinguishers. The one safety device that saved my life a couple years ago, is the kill switch. I was leaning over at night while my boat was in gear. I had the kill switch attached to my life jacket. I always wear my life jacket at night. I didn’t always connect the kill switch. I got lucky. The 5 gallon bucket I was trying to scoop water into caught a wave and I lost my footing. The motor quit and I was able to scramble back into the boat. I have no doubt that if it would have stayed in gear, I would have not been able to get back in. At night, wear a life jacket, and connect the kill switch. If you run at night a lot, one day it will save your life.
