Three people on PWC

In addition to adhering to all boating laws, PWC operators have requirements specific to their vessel.

  • Each person on board a PWC must wear a properly secured USCG–approved PFD.
  • PWC must either be equipped with an engine cut-off switch or have a self-circling feature if the operator falls off. If the PWC is equipped with an engine cut-off switch, the lanyard must be attached to the person, clothing, or PFD of the operator.
