Landau UK launches the ‘Lifecord’ – the kill cord you’ll never forget.

Lifecord is a newly designed kill cord providing the certainty and reliability of a tethered connection between a boat’s engine ignition kill switch and pilot, ensuring the vessel’s engine stops should the pilot be inadvertently thrown from the helm. However, unlike the typical passive kill cords commonly seen, Lifecord is a ‘smart’ kill cord incorporating detection technology designed to trigger an audible and visual warning alarm should Lifecord be connected to the boat’s kill switch but not the pilot, similar to the seatbelt warning in your car.

How to Use your Kill Cord Properly

Few people involved in powerboating will ever forget the tragic accident that occurred in Padstow two years ago when an entire family were thrown from a RIB that then circled unchecked at high speed, killing the father and eight-year-old daughter and severely injuring two other members of the family.

How to Clean your Teak Decks

There’s nothing like the golden glow of a freshly cleaned teak deck to make your boat look like new – but everyone seems to have a different idea about how to achieve it.

MBY Series 1Ironically the very reason teak is so soft and grippy to walk on in wet deck shoes is also the reason that it loses its lustre so quickly.

Its ability to absorb water means it also sucks in dirt and other impurities, particularly on the bathing platform where ?it is permanently exposed to the elements rather than sheltering ?beneath the cockpit canopy.

Fortunately, if tackled correctly, teak decking cleans up remarkably easily ?and effectively. Get it right and you’ll restore the beauty of real wood. Get it wrong and you’ll end up with a patchy deck of different hues.

Landau UK are delighted to be sponsoring the new 12 month ‘How To’ series in Motor Boat and Yachting Magazine, with the first one ‘How to Clean your Teak Decks’ in the latest May 2016 edition of the magazine.
