Tips For New Personal Watercraft Owners

While the lure of the sparkling water may be calling you to open up the motor of a new personal watercraft (PWC) and glide in, you should first familiarize yourself with your PWC options and responsibilities.

Purchasing Options

Before buying your first PWC, be sure to test out the different options you have. You might find that a Jet Ski is easier for you to maneuver than a WaveRunner. Be sure to consider what you'll be using the PWC for. Will you be riding with multiple people? Then you should consider a two or three-seat PWC. Will you be towing water skiers while riding your Jet Ski? If so, make sure you have the proper hook ups.

PWC Responsibilities And Care

In order to get the most use out of your new PWC, you need to learn how to care for and treat it. Here are some simple tips:

  • Don't try to run your PWC over thick weeds since this could damage your propellers.
  • Buy an anchor to keep your PWC in a location you know to be safe and rock-free.
  • Make sure to call GEICO and get full PWC insurance coverage for your new PWC so that you can enjoy the watercraft without worrying about the financial strain of an accident.
