Personal watercraft (PWCs) go by many names—water bikes, wet bikes, thrill
craft, Jet Skis—and they all mean fun. You see them everywhere these days.
They’re fast, powerful and fairly easy to operate.
But PWCs are also involved in many boating accidents and injuries. Operators
often go too fast, don’t pay attention and don’t have much experience. You’ll
have fun on a PWC when you treat it like a boat—with skill and respect. This
chapter will show you how to prevent accidents, be aware of hazards, and use
courtesy and common sense.
