You must wear an appropriate personal flotation device (PFD) at all times.
DO NOT TAKE OFF YOUR LIFE VEST
Wear a wet-suit (or wet suit bottom) while operating the PWC. Normal swimwear does not adequately protect against forceful water entry into the lower body opening(s) of both male and females. 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, eyewear) may be needed.
Keep Lanyard Attached
Securely attach engine shut-off cord (lanyard) to your wrist or PFD (as directed) and wear it at all times. Then if you fall off the PWC, the engine will stop.
Know How to Start and Stop the Engine
• To start the engine, be sure that the lanyard is attached and push the start button.
• To stop the engine, push the stop button. Stopping the engine will not stop the forward motion of the PWC and result in loss of steering.
Know Operational Controls
• The throttle controls your speed. Apply the throttle lever on the handle to accelerate and release it to slow down.
• The handlebars move the jet thrust nozzle directing thrust in different directions to steer the PWC. Without thrust you cannot steer the PWC.
Avoid Collisions - Most PWC Injuries and Deaths Result from Collisions
You need throttle to steer
Take Early Action to Avoid Collisions
Remember, PWC's and other boats DO NOT HAVE BRAKES
Avoid Aggressive Maneuvers
DO NOT APPLY THROTTLE WHEN ANYONE IS NEAR THE REAR OF THE PWC
Know How to Right the PWC in Open Water
Follow Rental Agency Rules and Boating Laws
• Review all rental agency rules and applicable boating laws.• Do not overload PWC. Do not tow unless the PWC is designed and equipped for towing. Know and follow all State requirements related to towing.
• Know the area in which you will be operating and observe all navigational markers and signs.
• Do you understand that you should scan constantly, operate defensively and avoid aggressive maneuvers?• Do you understand that PWCs do not have brakes?• Do you understand that you should release the throttle when you are trying to steer away from people, objects, other boats (including PWCs)?• Do you have any question about the PWC or its operation?
