KEEPING YOUR PWC EXPERIENCE FUN AND SAFE *A Checklist from the U.S. Coast Guard and Rad Kite & Jetski* General Operation* I understand that the PWC I am renting is a high performance boat, not a toy, and as such I will carefully observe and follow the instructions and safety rules I receive from my rental operator Safety Equipment* I will pay close attention to the required safety equipment instructions provided by my rental livery operator so that I am able to use it in the case of an emergency. Life Jackets* I understand that the U.S. Coast Guard requires that I always wear a life jacket while underway on a jet ski and that North Carolina requires a life jacket while operating a PWC. Starting / Stopping the PWC* Before starting the engine, I will securely attach the engine shut-off cord / kill switch lanyard to my wrist or life jacket and wear it at all times, keeping it free from the handlebars so that I fall off the PWC, the engine will stop. I understand that in order to turn off the engine, I need to push the RED stop button. I understand that the throttle controls the speed of my PWC. I understand that I should apply the throttle lever on the handle to accelerate and release it to slow down. Braking/Stopping* I understand that turning off the engine will not stop the forward motion of the PWC, and that on ALL PWC’s, steering control is lost when the throttle is released or when the engine is turned off. Safe Operation* When operating my PWC, I will maintain a proper lookout and scan constantly with sight and hearing, being alert for conditions that limit my visibility of block my vision of others I will always operate my PWC at safe speeds, taking into consideration the conditions around me, including other PWCs, boats, kiteboarders, windsurfers, swimmers, weather, and visibility. I will refrain from weaving through vessels that are underway, stopped, moored or at anchor while exceeding a reasonable speed. I will not operate my PWC at an excessive speed in a slow speed area or in a swimming area with swimmer’s present. Negligent Operation* I will avoid making sharp turns and other maneuvers that make it difficult for others to avoid colliding with me or to understand where I am going I will not jump wakes, nor will I steer toward an object or person and then turn sharply in close proximity to that object or person in order to spray or attempt to spray them with the wash or jet spray of the watercraft, as this is an unsafe operation Children and PWCs* I have been notified by my rental livery operator what the minimum age requirement is for children to operate a PWC, and I understand that just because a child can reach the throttle of a PWC doesn’t mean that they should. Jet Drive Intake* I understand that the jet drive intake has tremendous suction and will pull loose items, such as long hair, sand, stones, fishing line, loose clothing, or life jacket straps through the jet drive. I will keep these objects away from the intake grate under the jet ski near the back of the craft.
