Post Anyone add a kill switch to their boat?

Just wondering if anyone has done this? Is there a kit that I could buy or is this something that has to be pieced together?
Thanks in advance for the info.

Merc makes a good kit that you can get at any dealer that comes with very good directions as to the proper hook up.
You should have one for each motor but you can just use one if you want to, but it is recommended that you use one for each.

Jons right there are a number
of switches, I get mine from
REX Marine, "Mercury"
Also Get a spare cap for each
motor, If driver gets wet he
takes caps with him.
Lanyards are extra.

Todd, I bought one for the Foul last spring for $20 at Wolfs Marine in Benton Harbor (their annual spring sale, free food, good prices, etc...). Never installed it!!! Need to do it if I want to run in the shootout at LOTO this summer (required). You can get them at just about any dealer. In your boat, I would DEFINITEY recomend one!!!!

I've already got one in mine, but I'm gonna add one for the passengers. I've come close to spitting someone out before!
