Okay here is my proposal...when you return my money send me a push button along with papers so I can help you with development and we will use my boat and my two 3 year olds as a "test" market. I will use your product over the summer and fill out any required field paperwork to help you improve your product...all at no cost to you!

Just willing to help

Be sure to keep us posted on the changes as I am still interested.

I somewhat agree here, if the unit can be programmed by us (I saw from one pic there is a serial port spot on the control board, just not soldered on), then let us help you out.

As Guy Kawasaki once said, "Don't worry be crappy". Better to get a product out there and let people test then to never release a product trying to make it perfect.

Thought more about this overnight and have the following question:

Why is it your resposnibility to make everyones boat safer than factory?
My point is my current key set up does not have any other safety devices installed to keep the kids from turning the key.

My intent on installing your pushbutton start is to keep the key from getting broke off in the ignition, now that would not be safe!

Keep up the good work, not to apply any pressure but the boat comes home in 10 weeks at which time I am removing my key and installing a push button! (Hopefully yours)

Well, this is unfortunate, but understood. Mine works great and I love it. As this thread shows, there is some concern that accidental starting worries a few folks, especially ones with small children.

For those folks, I would suggest not installing one.

Or pulling the kill switch out if you want to have power, but no cranking. I thought that California was the only nanny state. Apparently, they are everywhere!

I always think of the movie Idiocracy and how it is slowly becoming a reality.

Thats not what I'm trying to do. I want to release the push button starter as I originally intended it because it works really well like that. I just need to do some more research and make sure that I can do that.
