Everyone knows they should wear a kill-switch lanyard when running a small outboard-powered boat, but virtually no one does. We get it — that lanyard isn’t only restrictive, when you move to grab a drink or get a line ready, it regularly shut the engine off by accident. Not so with the Fell Marine Man Overboard Basepack, which is designed to be worn as a wristband, kept in your pocket or clipped to a life jacket. It utilizes a wireless sensor to shut the engine off only if you go overboard.
