    If you look at the pic of the boat, the drive is trimmed much much too far in. Can it even be trimmed in any more? It's so sad to see this happen.

    It is an awesome product..... I bet more people would wear their lanyards if they realized how convenient they have become. Accidents happen (even at speeds below 35mph), no one intentionally goes overboard -hence the word accident. It takes about 15 minutes to install a wireless lanyard. I don't believe 15 minutes is too inconvenient for anyone when it comes to boating safety.

Anyhow I've been meaning to add one for long time now, I guess I should figure out where to order one and put on in. Do all boats come with lanyards as standard equipment?
    I work for a "wireless" lanyard company. Lanyards are inexpensive and easy to install. Although all manufacturers do not make them standard, NASBLA is establishing a model act that requires the install and wear of lanyards in all fifty states. You should definitely check it out:
    Hopefully this will become law so that we can all be safer on the water.

    Re: Another Accident

    I'm very sad to hear of all these accidents.

    One thing that I started doing recently when I realized I did a couple big speed runs and noticed after that my lanyard was on the floor.

    I drape the lanyard over the bottom of my steering wheel. Can't steer the boat with it there, reminds you to put it on.

    I keep thinking that if you do not put one on and get ejected out of the boat where will the boat end up? I know with mine it will go until it hits something or runs out of gas. the throttles do not move back by them selves.

    I have been boating a LONG time. Alot longer than some of these perfect people and accidents can happen to anyone. Not everyone makes the right decisions everytime and it is very fortunate that no one was hurt. I am sure the operator has learned a valuble lesson and will be twice as carefull the next time.

    Maybe the guy was an idiot and shouldn't be on the water. But, maybe he just made a mistake?

    Well said. Anyone of us can make a mistake, esp. at the speeds some of us run
