Steering a PWC

Reboarding A Capsized PWC

After a fall a PWC could be completely overturned. When this occurs you should follow these procedures:

  • Most manufacturers have placed a decal at the rear the craft that indicates the direction to roll your PWC to an upright position. If no decal exists, check your owners manual or ask the dealer
  • With this information you should be able to roll the PWC over and reboard with little problem. If you roll it over the wrong way you could cause serious damage to your PWC
  • It is a good idea to practice reboarding with someone else around
  • Avoid riding your PWC when you are very tired, as this can make reboarding more difficult
  • Avoid riding where there are strong currents or winds; this could hamper your reboarding efforts
