Thanks for the replies. I was worried about forgetting them being on as well. Tieing something to the steering wheel is a great idea.

We have three kids so I made a set of covers that have a plastic liner in case some one falls or kicks the prop it wouldn't go through the fabric and still cut them. They have a draw string around the top to collapse around the prop.

I have a matching bag that goes over the throttles to remind me they are on.

We have had two incidents in the last 5 years. I tried to moon someone and fell off hitting my side and slicing myself to the bone. And another buddy who ended up with about 20 stiches including several internal.

They seem like they would be a pain to put on I'n the water.
