Jet Ski Safety Tips

Riding a Jet Ski is a fun way to spend a lake day. When out on the water, it is important to follow safety guidelines to ensure an enjoyable yet safe ride. Motor Boatin’ provides some safety tips for anyone looking to ride a Jet Ski.

Here are five safety tips for riding a Jet Ski:

  1. Take an online boating safety course: Online safety courses are available to inform individuals with all different kinds of boating backgrounds of the safety guidelines that should be enforced at all times. On our website, we provide a free safety course to get started.
  2. Wear a life jacket: One of the most crucial safety precautions when riding any personal watercraft is wearing a life jacket. The driver and all passengers of the Jet Ski should be wearing a life jacket at all times regardless of their swimming abilities. It is also important that the jacket fits correctly. Wearing a life jacket that is too loose or too tight can cause it to not work properly.
  3. Maintain distance and don’t speed: Like cars, speeding is one of the leading causes of accidents on the water. With this, it is a good idea to maintain a safe distance when riding near other Jet Skis to prevent any serious accidents.
  4. Never drink alcoholic beverages when operating: Drinking when operating a Jet Ski can impair a driver’s judgment and cause unsafe conditions. This makes it very dangerous for not only the driver but also the passengers riding. North Carolina prohibits any person from being under the influence when operating all types of watercraft.
  5. Stay alert: When riding on public waters, there can be other individuals on all types of watercraft. It is important to be mindful of others and to always stay alert to ensure the safety of everyone riding and those in close proximity.

Safety is our number one priority. If you are interested in renting a Jet Ski or any other personal watercraft, consider Motor Boatin’. Check our availability and reserve a spot today. Contact us for more information or any questions you may have.

Stay Safer and Have More Fun with Our Jet Ski Safety Tips

 

Riding on a Jet Ski can be one of the most exhilarating things to do on the water, but it can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. The good news is that most Jet Ski accidents can be avoided when you follow a few simple safety guidelines.

Jet Ski

Here are some things to consider before you head out to the lake with your family to Jet Ski:

  • Everyone should have a life jacket: Regardless of age or swimming ability, everyone is safer with a life jacket if it fits properly. Double check the fit of life jackets intended for children.
  • Consider wearing a helmet: A helmet specially designed for use on the water provides the best protection if you get ejected from your Jet Ski or if there is flying debris from a boat or some other source while you’re on the water. In some states, children are required to wear helmets.
  • Watch your speed: Make sure you keep proper distance between your Jet Ski and other watercraft in the area. Remember that you need room to stop if it becomes necessary. Use common sense and obey any speed guidelines for the area you are in.
  • Stay sober: Alcohol reduces your coordination, reaction time and can impair your judgement. Don’t drink if you are going to be on a Jet Ski.

Taking proper care of your Jet Skis is another important component to staying safe on the water, but if you rent your Jet Ski from us here at Motor Boatin LLC, you can rest assured that we have taken care of that for you.

The Basics of Riding Waverunners

Personal watercrafts came on the scene back in the 1970s with Yamaha waverunners, the first sit-down type, open-stern production, personal watercraft, entering the market in 1986. Since then, they have become a popular option on our nation’s beaches, as well as lakes and other waterways. If you are new to waverunners, here are a few basics you should know.

1. Rent before you buy. It is usually better to learn how to operate something new by renting one before investing in one. This gives you the opportunity to see if you like it enough to own one yourself. You can also rent different types so you’ll learn which you prefer.

Waverunners

2. Learn the safety measures. There are two very important safety measures you should know. The first is that you should always wear a life jacket. Even if you are an excellent swimmer, a life jacket could save your life if you were to be rendered unconscious in an accident. The second is to use the engine shut-off clip safety feature. That way, if you fall off, the engine instantly shuts down. This keeps you safe, as well as others in the area.

3. Start slow. You should always start at slow speeds as you learn how waverunners move on the water and how to safely manage turning. Take time to see how the watercraft maneuvers before going full-throttle. It is best to learn while close to shore. Once you feel confident, head out to deeper waters and slowly increase speed. Waverunners hop off waves at higher speeds, so lift your buttocks a couple inches off the seat when you feel it lift for a more comfortable ride.

If you are interested in renting waverunners, sea-doos or jet skis, check out our selection at Motor-Boatin LLC. Our online booking is available 24 hours a day. We also rent pontoon boats, fishing boats, and motorboats. Get out and enjoy all that Falls Lake has to offer and create life-long memories!

Kids and their parents can go out on the lake to make memories and have fun all while getting a tan. This is a great way to have fun with your kids before the drag of school starts and steals all of their time away.

With our all beautiful trails, lakes, and other outdoor enjoyments, you can spend time in any of these places and leave feeling more relaxed.

Here at Motor-Boatin LLC, we want to help you narrow down your options, so you can make the most of your time outdoors.

Jet Skis in North CarolinaJet skis can do most things that boats can. They can tow people on tubes or skis, and they can be launched from most docks just as easily if not easier than a boat. Jet skis are a little more agile, since they’re smaller, meaning you can go faster and do more adventurous water activities if the thrill-seeker in you is wanting a little water time. Jet skis are great for date nights or small groups, but can also accommodate larger groups of people when you want to have beach time in addition to water time. Jet skis are fuel-efficient and can generally be launched from more areas, even without a dock.

Some advantages of boats over jet skis are usually size related. If you want to take a large group onto the water, a boat will usually be a better choice. A larger boat means that you can tow one or more people on a tube. Additionally, you can spend all your time on the water if you prefer.

When it comes to your time on the water, there is no wrong choice to make. Whether you choose a jet ski or a boat, you’re sure to have a good time on the water.
