April 8, 2021

Twelve Episode Video Series Demonstrates Safe Personal Watercraft (PWC) Operations

Raleigh, NC, 8 April 2021 – America’s Boating Channel™ is presenting a new series comprised of twelve videos focused on essential maneuvers for safely operating Jet Skis, Sea-Doos, and WaveRunners.

Every Friday afternoon at 4:00 PM Eastern Time, a new “Personal Watercraft (PWC) Operations” title has debuted on America’s Boating Channel’s website homepage and YouTube channel.

“PWC Docking – Doing it Right,” the final video in the series, premiering on April 9, is one of two new videos showing how to bring a personal watercraft to a predetermined point by using a stopping procedure, giving consideration to wind, current, and boat traffic.

Viewers will learn three techniques to apply to bring PWCs dockside or into a slip depending upon the wind or current. Also featured are techniques to use for crafts that do not have reverse gear.

Coming next will be s two-part mini-series on “Boat Accident Reporting.”

Safe PWC operations can be well depicted on video, and many of the maneuvers apply to recreational vessels generally. Screening safe boating videos is an excellent way for boaters to prepare for safer experiences on the water.

The service recently completed its “Navigation Rules FAQ” mini-series including four videos answering frequently asked questions about basic boating regulations.

America’s Boating Channel is now developing videos to be produced for its Season Five. To find out more, email
