Re: A Graphic Reminder To ALWAYS Attach The Kill Switch!

Bad things can happen when you least expect it! I don't care if you can swim across the English Channel...Your swimming skills don't matter when you get in a boating accident and get hurt. Wear those life jackets when the big motor is running!! Don't tempt fate!
