    Best idea Iíve seen yet. Just make sure the clip is strong enough so the kayak doesnít float away from you.

    Some of you may know of the spot "peanuts" is the name of the place .
    did the man survive or did his major organs shut down .
    sometimes I hear about this stuff and even though they get to shore they still don't live thru it .
    As far as I know the man survived,last I saw him,he made it to the boat ramp,folks stripped him down and got some dry clothes on him .

    Thanks. I think the more folks see accidents like this, the more they will practice safety. Let me know what you find out about the DIY kill switch.

    Superdave... only thing I recommend is keep your phone in something dry. If it gets wet and quits working it is no good to you.

    Remember, one mans "poor" catch could be another man's "great" catch.

    So glad you didn't witness the opposite ending... Will say a prayer for the gentleman's full recovery ... Thanks for sharing. We become complacent with things like safety when we have no problems....
