    Last year Samantha’s 1963 Mandella was totaled at Long Beach. One year later it is back in the water as a tribute lake boat. We can’t thank Brent at Unhinged motor sports enough for all he has done to restore such a great boat. Maybe it’s racing days are over but it’s a hell of a lot of fun to...

    Looking into what you guys use for a kill switch I've used the chepo plastic ones w/ the wire spring and seems after a short period the cap keeps popping off or it breaks anything out there better pics would be a plus ,ready to buy if someone makes a good one.

    I took my 1988 Formula 206LS out for the first time this weekend (the only time before I have to winterize). The boat has a carbureted mercury 350 Magnum. Everything ran great in the beginning but eventually I was unable to shift into neutral. The control was very difficult to move and would...

    Hi all, I never installed a kill switch in my RaysonCraft and was wondering if there are good and bad locations? I have a Morse Control and was thinking behind it. Towards the stern. Also, are any of the kill switches better than the others? Thanks for any advice. --Jerry

    Where is the best place to mount a kill switch in a flatbottom and how long should the lanyard be? Thinking about hitting a race or 2 next year and didnt know if there was a specific location the sanctioning bodies may require it to be. Seems to me like a bracket on the stringer just in front of...

    When building my engine straub gave me a couple options for the cam, one of them was to set it on kill. I've herd a couple other guys talk about engines being on kill. Whats this actually mean?

    What does anyone think about a kill switch in boats used for pleasure only? We had a fatal accident up here over the week-end. A guy wrecked his Sanger pickle fork jet hydro making the last run for the day. I was thinking that it might be a good idea to have the boat shut down in the event...

    Who has the best way to attach the kill switch lanyard to your wrist. I think that the stock Mercury one could use some improvement. I loop it around my wrist but worry that in an emergency it would possibly slip off. It also has a metal clip so that if you rest your arm on the side of the boat...

    When the clip is in position does it complete the circuit or interupt it?
