ok just to be clear, he contacted me to see if we are still interested in the group buy. i've been a little busy and forgot about this. here is the email. he is asking us if we still want them, he reached out to me. if anything i dropped the ball by not keeping up on this. i had to go back like 4 pages to find this thread, my mistake.

Scott,


I haven’t heard from any one inquiring about the group buy.

Has there been any activity?

This has probably been thought of--just the same. Don't boat alone--if you get tossed, yeah, it's great the engine gets killed. But you may not be able to swim back to the boat if the currents and winds are not in your favor. And think of this: if you ARE boating with a buddy, and you fly out of the boat, after that engine is dead--can he drive the boat back to get you? Maybe you can, I don't know--just asking and maybe this is ONLY for people who boat alone.

I do know one guy ("Mike" 17 Whaler) who has a kill switch to his waste--but he also has a soft tether he clips on while underway, so he also has a haul back to the boat

I still want one of these but im just a little leery on the quality.I would like to know how one would consider something to be "marine grade" and is this considered marine grade.Electronics are not expensive.Marine grade electronics on the other hand are not.

I dont want to be saying to myself well,you got what you paid for as im treading water watching my boat disappear into the sunset.
I need the owner of this company to sell me on this.

Here's a competing product that looks better than the Autotether:
the CoastKey
Double the price, but more high tech. There is no mechanical clip on your kill switch like an Autotether, and no ugly yellow box on your dash.

Maybe we can get a group buy on this. Looks like they are discounting pre-orders before July 20, 2017. Anyone interested?

Take a look at this one. I had the autotether on my boat but it would shut the motor off when I turned away from the helm at times. Not good with all my troll gear down. I changed to this unit and it works good. www.fellmarine.com. Kirk

Didn't see that one. It looks better and less expensive. I have no need for the remote start or tilt/trim features of the other unit. Thanks for the note.

If he just used it as a safety engine shut off and delete all the fancy stuff it would be much much cheaper... its almost 400. US for the single engine model I have twins...
