    What do you mean by opposite? Normally open vs normally closed? I believe it just breaks the ground path?

    Just an idea, the shift interupter switch is normally open and closes and grounds the ignition when you take the boat out of gear, you could feed 12 volts to the interupter switch and then run the wire to a relay that is normally closed, you could then run your ignition wire from the ignition switch thru the normally closed contacts on the relay.

    hook it up to the tach, never tried it, but grounding out the tach lead for the second the eng needs to die to pull one of those alpha's out of gear should work.
