It is illegal to operate a PWC between sunset and sunrise, even if the PWC is equipped with proper navigation lights.
PWC should not be operated in a reckless or negligent manner. Examples of unsafe operation are:
- Turning a PWC sharply so as to spray another person or vessel
- Operating at a rate of speed and proximity to another vessel so that either operator must swerve at the last minute to avoid collision
- Jumping or attempting to jump the wake of another vessel within 100 feet of that vessel
