Welcom aboard. However, remember that this site is called BOATINGabc.com. Since your site's name implies only PWC's, I wouldn't be surprised if you get no other responses here. True, we have participants that own both PWCs and boats, but we ALL have, have had, or are looking forward to boat ownership. Personally, my experience with PWCs is that the "fun" quickly wears off when the riders find there is little to do aboard them. Driving around a body of water with nothing else to do gets a bit boring. I also find from experience that the times I had a run-in with another "captain," it was with a person who was driving a PWC and doing stupid things. Granted, not all PWC riders are rude and get themselves and others into potential personal injury.

BTW, we boat on a lake that prohibits PWCs.


Have a great day of boating

Jack, your experiences on PWC's just about parallels mine. Part of the fun of boating is being on the water with friends....many friends, and being able to relax with them, carry on conversations, etc. None of that goes with a PWC.
