Report Engine kill switches on narrowboats? in Boat Equipment Posted June 16, 2020 2 minutes ago, PeterF said: Well, when I had to jump onto a single handers boat to take the engine out of gear because he had got off to moor up with the middle rope while it was still in gear. If he had tried getting on he would have relaxed the rope and it would have moved further from the bank. Explains the need for a big reg light with the words, "do not disembark until neutral is selected" on it. Indeed - quite logical now you explain it - thanks!
