i had no idea it was that bad.
yours and OTIS311's incidents should make everyone realize how dangerous these "pleasure" boats can be.
wear those lanyards everyone!
Steve, I wear my lanyard all the time and my life vest when it gets ugly out or blastin' around. I was in a Powerboat magazine question of the month after the accident. I'll see if I can dig that up.
I race with a jacket and wear a smaller one when out testing in the bay or ocean, not fun been their, thank god for my helmet.
Yes, they do. The kit includes a 3 foot length of 3/8'' chain.Originally Posted by R Addiction

I'm still waiting to here it. I know you guys are out there:
"I've been boating 25 years and I've never seen the need
to use a lanyard!"
Miami 2005 stuffed my Pantera and both of us were ejected right at the start of the race. Got back in the boat with the help of rescue and ended up towing Beckly in because they would not let us continue the race
