MULL BLOG: 27 Days After the Boat Sank.

Monday, July 30, 2012

OK, I promise this one won’t be as long as the last one about how our boat sank back on July 3 in Lake Michigan about five miles from shore, leaving four of us up to our chins in water, with only two life jackets between us. This BLOG entry is about what I’m going to start doing again—safety measures I used to be pretty religious about, but that I just quit doing. It will also reveal a few things that I forgot to put in the first story (which you can read the most recent version of HERE).  Read Full Story

MULL's BLOG: Stupid, Adrift and Thanking God for a Coleman Cooler

Thursday, July 05, 2012

They say confession is good for the soul, but bad for the reputation, but I'm going to tell you about the blunders that led to yours truly hanging on to a cooler in waves of many different sizes, about five miles from shore out on Lake Michigan the day before the July 4th holiday.

Monday, July 02, 2012

Cordless Autotether Stops Boat if Pilot Falls Overboard

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

CHESTER, CT – Unlike traditional lanyards that come standard with boats and require the operator to be tethered to the boat, the patented Autotether kill switch is an easy-to-install, unobtrusive wireless unit. No wiring or tools are required—the system clips to the boat ignition switch and is self-powered with AAA batteries. Operating via transmitter that sends radio waves to a receiver connected to a boat’s engine, Autotether shuts off the engine if the boat operator falls into the water. It also sets off an alarm in the event that passengers (or pets) wearing the Autotether sensors on the boat fall into the water. The passenger sensors can also shut off the boat’s engine when the red alert button is pushed if you have a runaway boat.  Read Full Story
