Default Annapolis Boat Show (Wireless Lanyard)

I was at the boat show yesterday and a guy has developed a wireless lanyard that shuts the engines off if the remote get wet. It uses the factory kill switch.
I will put his web site on here when I find his card that is in all of my boat show information.

888-593-4181 He said his web site would be up in a couple of weeks.
Basically you put the remote in your pocket. If you get thrown overboard it shuts the engines down.

Cool idea, just not sure I'd want to depend on a wireless remote to possibly save my life.

Inside the AUTOTETHER™ sensor is a transmitter that sends radio waves to a receiver connected to your boat’s ignition. Should the operator or a passenger wearing the AUTOTETHER™ sensor fall overboard, the signal between the transmitter and the receiver is broken (radio waves do not travel through water).
