Requirements Specific to “Ski Craft”
In addition to adhering to all boating laws, “ski craft” operators have requirements specific to their vessel. While the laws covered here are for “ski craft,” it is recommended that all PWC operators follow these laws.
- The operator of a “ski craft” must wear a USCG–approved Type I, II, or III life jacket at all times.
- Although not legally required, it is strongly recommended that an operator of a PWC equipped with a lanyard-type engine cut-off switch attach the lanyard to his or her person, clothing, or life jacket.
