Another Reason to Invest in Safety Devices
As I mentioned in an earlier posting I am a fan of the wireless lanyard safety device, Autotether. This device connects directly to your engine kill switch and protects up to 3 passengers onboard (it works for pets as well). If the operator falls overboard, the engine will shut off and if a passenger were to fall overboard, the alarm will sound, alerting fellow passengers and the operator.
Boat and yacht insurance provider Travelers, recently announced that they are giving boaters a discount on premiums for using Autotether. Travelers stated that they expect offering this discount will encourage boaters to use wireless emergency stop lanyards and make it safer for everyone on the water.
Travelers said that they are currently reviewing safety devices by other manufacturers as well, with the hope that they can offer discounts for those products in the future
This is yet another reason to invest in a safety product such as Autotether. Not only does it protect the operator and passengers, but now may offer a savings as well.
Check out footage video of a collision that could have been prevented by Autotether.
