What are the defects?
A poorly-installed sensor in the shut-off switch assembly may allow water to seep inside the sensor (switch housing) and become corroded, causing an intermittent connection.
What are the hazards?
An intermittent connection may result in a malfunction with the engine shut-off switch. If the switch malfunctions, the engine may stop suddenly even though the lanyard is in place, or the engine may not stop when the lanyard is pulled. This could result in loss of control of the watercraft and an accident causing injury or death.
