  • It is extremely important that a PWC encountering another PWC follow the same navigation rules that apply to motorboats or any other power-driven vessel.
  • Most fatalities involving PWCs result from injuries caused by collisions and not from drowning.
    • The operator and passengers ride on top of the PWC instead of down inside it. There are no hulls or other enclosures to provide protection from the impact of a collision.
    • Due to the lack of protection, PWC collisions are more likely to be deadly for the operator and any passengers.
