Lawful Operation While Towing a Person With a Vessel
- It is illegal to operate a personal watercraft or similar device capable of being remote-controlled by the skier unless such device is factory-equipped with an ignition safety switch capable of shutting off the engine in the event the skier becomes detached from the personal watercraft device.
- It is illegal for vessels to tow skiers or surfboards, parasails, or any device of this type between sunset and sunrise or when visibility is restricted so as to endanger life or property.
- Vessels towing water-skiers or participating in a similar activity must operate in a careful and prudent manner. A reasonable distance from other vessels, people, and property must be maintained so as not to endanger life or property. It is illegal to cause the person being towed to collide with any object or person.
