That is correct and a working lanyard is needed for a lot of insurance companies. For a very short story and somethings I can not talk about ---- about a week ago I was hired as 3 party to inspect a damaged boat and inspect for a proper working lanyard. It did NOT have a working lanyard and the insurance claim was denied.

What if there is a working lanyard but operator was not wearing it and there was an accident the kill switch would have prevented?

Default lanyard fasten point

This is what I use, as I put on my vest and sit down, I wrap this around my leg just above my knee. Left or right steering makes no difference just switch legs.
My arms and hands are free for operating the boat and controls. I love it compared to all the other options.

Wear mine on my throttle wrist, the CG noticed last time I was stopped for a safety check. It was a short stop.

These are available on another site. I use them and they work great whether on the arm, wrist or ankle.

those would be way better and more practical than the t shirt or beer coozy ya get for an OSO membership, plus they promote safety, and have more than one use(banned for that one)

Have you seen the wireless lanyards? Nothing to worried about getting tangled up in. It's on my to-do list.
Also CG won't even stop ya if you have a pre-inspection decal. In FL CG Aux. Comes to wherever the boat is free of charge annually when requested by the owner.
