Requirements Specific to PWC
In addition to adhering to all boating laws, PWC operators have requirements specific to their vessel.
- Each person riding on a PWC must wear a USCG–approved PFD. Each PFD must be designed for persons on PWC and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s label.
- If the PWC is equipped with a lanyard-type engine cut-off switch, the lanyard must be attached to the person, clothing, or PFD of the operator.
