Do you think just disconnecting the purple wire is a good idea? and not to sound like a total idiot, when people refer to the "purple wire" they are talking about the wire that is attached to the kill switch, correct?
You can't just disconnect it. The purple wire is basically the ignition wire. The lanyard is designed to interrupt the circuit and shut down the boat if you are ejected from the boat, however, I don't know anyone who actually attaches the lanyard to themselves while driving. If you are going to bypass it, remove the lanyard switch and take the two purple wires off it and connect them together with a butt splice or marrette.
