Choosing PFDs Or Lifejackets For Sea Doo Tours

Choosing PFDs Or Lifejackets For Sea Doo Tours

Discover Best Tips For Choosing PFDs Or Lifejackets… Your life may depend on choosing PFDs or lifejackets that keep you afloat. That’s good because I can’t recall the last time I spotted a Sea Doo, jet ski or Waverunner PWC operator not wearing a lifejacket or personal flotation device, commonly known as a “PFD”. In fact, PFDs are as much a part of Sea Doo riding as are wearing helmets for snowmobiling or motorcycling. As a safety item, PFDs have two primary purposes: to prevent drowning and to ensure that the wearer is highly visible in the water if help is needed. But when learning how to choose a PFD, they should not be confused with lifejackets… Choosing PFDs or Lifejackets A lifejacket is designed to turn an …

Best Marine Rope For Sea Doo Tours & Docking

Best Marine Rope For Sea Doo Tours & Docking

Get Every Colour & Length Marine Rope Online or At The Store… Where do you get the best marine rope, mooring lines and dock rope & boat rope? Being both a cottager and a boater, I’ve often needed rope for mooring, docking anchoring, rigging, towing and water sports – and for my Sea-Doo GTX S 155, but getting the right length, weight, colour and load rating can be frustrating. Whether you’re an expert or a beginner as a Sea Doo, Waverunner or jet ski rider, choices at many stores are either limited or come in hard shell packaging that don’t make comparison-shopping easy. I was particularly stymied trying to find about 40’ of ultra strong, floating towrope that wasn’t too bulky for the …

Best PWC Emergency Tools for Sea Doo Tours

Best PWC Emergency Tools for Sea Doo Tours

What’s Needed To Deal With Most Common Problems On The Water… Why do you need PWC Emergency Tools? Sitting behind a big cruiser, we started up our two Sea-Doo watercraft as the lock gates opened. My GTX S 155 operated normally at first, but after a couple more revs, the other PWC seemed to go into limp home mode. That’s the safety mode selected by the on board computer when something’s amiss to prevent engine damage. My immediate thought was that something had got sucked through the grate into the impeller so we’d need to stop and investigate. Unfortunately, we were on a stretch of river with rocky shores, few docks and no place to beach the PWC and turn it on its …

Retractable Ratchet Straps For Securing Trailering

Retractable Ratchet Straps For Securing Trailering

Check Out The Best Way To Tie Down Your Jet Ski To A Trailer… Have you ever tried Retractable Ratchet Straps? Used to be that every time I fastened the backs of my two Sea-Doo GTX S 155 watercraft to my Triton PWC Trailer, I thought to myself…“There must be a better way!” Like experienced riders and beginners, I’d tried ropes, regular tie down straps and ratchet straps. None are as quick or easy as I’d like. Sure, if I take my time, I can make my PWC’s secure, but there’s too much fiddling around and untangling of straps. Then I spotted a Triton trailer with built in tie downs (now included on most Triton PWC Trailers) and discovered the …
