This is a question that has been debated among many boaters and people who spend time in the water. The answer, however, is not as simple as it may seem at first glance. It can be difficult to make decisions when you are on the water because the conditions can change so quickly.
In this article, we will discuss both sides of the debate and help you come to an informed decision about what’s best for your situation!
The pros for boat owners: Boat operators have the right of way in any situation, and they can use their engines to manoeuvre out of a potential conflict with another watercraft. PWC riders often feel like they need more room because there is less wake from these smaller boats. On top of that PWC’s are harder to see at a distance so it’s important boaters know about them before approaching their space too closely.
Boats also generally travel faster than PWC which means if you’re crossing paths with one on accident or by design, then your vessel will be moving away from theirs very quickly!
The cons for boat owners: Boat speeds may make following rules difficult – but this is easy enough to avoid.
