    Default New Coast Guard Requirement

    Seriously? Check this out. Who's behind this and why do they think we need to idiot-proof everything?

    Iím pretty sure most boats already have this kill switch with the tether cord unless I misread something

    First off, my ‘86 doesn’t have this anywhere on it so there is that. Second of all, when docking, the ability to quickly move around without killing the engine because you forget to untether the driver from the kill switch is more important than the few idiots that this very device are intended for.

    My 2012 has it but don’t use it.

    If you read on, “Common situations where ECOSL use would not be required include docking/trailering, trolling, and operating in no-wake zones.”
