Thank god it didn't wipe out someone innocently sitting in another boat! It's accidents like these that we're all going to be paying for with higher insurance rates and legislation. I realize accidents can happen to the best of us, but it sure sounds like this isn't the first for this owner, and honestly, how hard is it to wear a lanyard?

On the Lanyard note.
When is the last time you ck'd yours to see if it works ? I hate to admit it, but i wore my for a season before i realized the previous owner had un-wired mine for whatever reason.

I hope this will be a reminder to him (and everyone else) to start using their lanyard!

the 32 sunk...

I'm sure it can be buffed out.

My boat has a kill switch that I use. But it seems like there should be one for the passenger too.

Hopefully, the driver would notice that a passenger was ejected. Besides, if the boat goes dead in the water, how do you go back to pick them up?
(This, by the way, is why you MUST carry spare lanyard caps... )
An even better deal would be to wire your passenger's lanyard to the "Man Over Board" button on your GPS.
