Three people on PWC

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

  • Every person on board a PWC must wear a USCG–approved Type I, II, or III PFD that is in good and serviceable condition.
  • If the PWC is equipped by the original manufacturer with an engine cut-off switch, the lanyard must be attached to the person, clothing, or PFD of the operator.
