Emergency Diesel Stop Lanyard
I have a diesel with a mechanical pull cable to stop the engine. As far as I know there is no optional stop solenoid for it. The engine is a 3 cylinder Yanmar. I have two steering stations one inside and the other outside in the cockpit. I would like a lanyard stop system to stop the engine if I were to fall overboard. There is probably some way to install a stop solenoid and wire a kill switch like on outboards. I have also thought of fabricating a system using a spring and a pin that pulls out if it were jerked on. Any suggestions?
