PWC Renter Orientation Checklist

Protective Clothing/Equipment for Operators and Passengers

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 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.

PWC Controls

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 will 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

Do Not Release Throttle when trying to Steer

  • You need throttle to steer

Take Early Action to Avoid Collisions

  • Remember, PWC’s and other boats do not have brakes.

Scan Constantly

  • Scan constantly for people, objects and other boats (including PWCs).
  • Be alert for conditions that limit your visibility or block your vision of others.

Operate Defensively

  • Operate at safe speeds.
  • Keep a safe distance away from people, objects and other boats (including
  • Do not follow directly behind PWCs or other boats.
  • Do not go near others to spray or splash them with water.
  • Avoid sharp turns and other maneuvers that make it difficult for others to avoid
    colliding with you or that make it difficult for others to understand where you
    are going.

Other Hazards

Avoid Aggressive Maneuvers

  • This is a high-performance boat—it is not a toy
  • Ride within your limits and avoid aggressive maneuvers to reduce the risk of loss of control, ejection , and collision.
  • Sharp turns or jumping wakes or waves can increase the risk of back/spinal injury (paralysis), facial injuries, and broken legs, ankles or other bones.
  • Do not jump wakes or waves.

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

  • Items such as long hair, loose clothing, or PFD straps can become entangled
    in moving parts resulting in severe injury or drowning.

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 th PWC. Water and/or debris exiting jet thrust nozzle can cause serious injury.

Know How to Right the PWC in Open Water

  • If you capsize in open water, swim to the rear of the PWC and turn it upright be sure to turn it in the proper direction. Then board it from the rear.
