Personal Watercraft Safety Course

Anatomy of a PWC Personal watercrafts, or PWCs, are small jet-drive propelled powerboats. The pumps draw water into the housing with an impeller, which pressurizes the water and forces it through the steerable nozzle, pushing the boat forward. (See jet pump diagram below) PWCs exist in three main styles: stand-up, sit-down sport class (one or two people), and sit-down three or four-person. The stand-up style carries only one person who stands while operating the vessel, while the sit-down styles have seats for one to four people.
