All boaters must use Kill Switch, it’s the Law

Some guy running a Bass boat at a high rate of speed flipped the boat on a wave and the fool wasn’t wearing a kill switch. When I ran Bass boats I always wore a life jacket and kill switch. Well now it’s the law, you must wear one. It is also a tournament rule. Well after this happened last week they are doing safety checks for small boaters and giving out tickets. Everyone really should wear one while running with the boat on plane. I now set mine up so it easily attaches to my wrist or I can clip it to my life jacket when running in rough water or when there is a lot of boat traffic.
