    Has anyone ever used one of these? Seems like a pretty cool idea if you are fishing alone or with young ones. I think the wife might feel better if I had one that's for sure. I would love to hear if there's any local knowledge on these gismos or if they are just another waste of money. Thanks

    thanks TIME, I left the main link just because it showed more about the product. That price at boemarine is a really good price from what I have seen. I'm really interested if anyone has used one and what there experience has been. By the looks of responses, not many have. I don't know if I will shell out the money on locally untried product. Thanks

    My neighbor just got one after I mentioned such a product exists. It looks great. No wiring required, it just plugs into the existing kill switch and uses a small motor to pop itself out of the existing switch. I would already have one for my boat except my motor blew up last week and there's not much need for a kill switch on a motor that doesn't run. :) You can also take it from boat to boat if you have more than one or your buddy doesn't have the wireless kill switch.

    Thanks for posting this. For $237 I'm going to buy one. I fish solo and think the more safety conscious you are, the better.

    Are you calling me old Boy Wonder?? LOL. It's a good idea for all fisherman. I mean, why have a life jacket if you figure you will never need it? You still have it on board or better yet on your body because you know accidents happen all the time, good weather or bad. Take that boy wonder. LOL LOL
