PWC riding too close to a boat

“Ski craft” must operate in a responsible manner. It is illegal to:

  • Weave a “ski craft” through congested waterway traffic.
  • Get dangerously close to another vessel, person, or object such that you are required to swerve at the last possible moment in order to avoid a collision.
  • Operate a “ski craft” in any other careless or negligent way or in a way that endangers the life, limb, or property of others.

“Ski craft” may be operated on any lake, pond, river, or coastal water during daylight hours (sunrise to sunset) only.

“Ski craft” may not be operated on any lake, pond, or river where the operation of “ski craft” is prohibited by law. (Operation of a “ski craft” is prohibited on any pond or lake less than 75 acres in area.)
