PWC keeping proper distance

PWCs must be operated in a reasonable and prudent manner. It is illegal to:

  • Weave your PWC through congested waterway traffic or swerve at the last possible moment in order to avoid collision
  • Jump or attempt to jump another vessel’s wake when within 100 feet of the vessel creating the wake or when visibility is obstructed
  • Follow within 100 feet of anyone being towed behind another vessel
  • Speed in restricted speed areas or operate at greater than headway speed while within or at the entrance to a marina or other mooring area
  • Operate in areas where motorized vessels are prohibited
