    Excellent post. I'm going to print a copy of everything off and hand it to guests when they come with me to the lake.

    But I think everything can be summed up by this:

    DON'T BE STUPID.

    This is excellent info. I took the coast guard boating safety course and exam online (for north carolina) before I ever picked my ski up at the dealer. This after being a boater for 20 years and putting several thousand hours in on the lake. I won't let anyone touch my ski that hasn't taken this course. I never realized how much I DIDN'T know about boating.

    Be alert for conditions that limit your visibility or block your vision of other.

    Do Not Apply Throttle when Anyone is at the Rear of the PWC

    Do not apply the throttle when anyone is standing or swimming toward the rear of the PWC. Water and / or debris exiting jet thrust nozzle can cause serious injury.

    Hitting someone in the water can cause serious injury.
    Keep out of swimming area when on a WaveRunner.


    Stay out of prohibited sreas.



    Speeding is dangerous.

    Observe the speed limit in restricted areas.


    When towing someone or something…….

    When towing someone or something, pay attention to ensure safety in the surrounding area and do not ride dangerously.


    Do not ride at night.

    Riding in the dark is very dangerous.
    Do not ride at night


    Weather at sea can change without warning.

    Reminders Before Riding


    Wear PFD and Other Protective Clothing / Equipment

    You must wear an appropriate personal flotation device (PFD) at all times.
    Wear a wet-suit (or wet suit bottom) while operating the PWC.
    Normal swimwear does not adequately protect against forceful water entry into rectum or vagina.
    Severe internal injuries can occur if water is forced into body cavities as a result of falling into water or being near jet thrust nozzle.
    Additional protective equipment (such as footwear , gloves) may be needed.




    It is very dangerous to drink ride.

    Never get on a WaveRunner if you have been drinking.
    Relaxing your attention even slightly increases the potential for a serious accident much more on water than on land.


    Check the weather

    Check the weather on the radio, TV or other source before leaving. Check the forecast for the next several days and pay special attention to wave height and wind speed.[/QUOTE]
