Summer vacation is almost over, but you still have time to go to a large body of water and ride your personal marine engine, or watercraft. However, before you do, you should read the tips below to make sure you ride in a safe manner. This will help you keep your rides, thrilling, fun, and smooth!

How to Remain Safe While on Your Personal Marine Engine

Be Prepared to Ride It

Before you step out onto the water, it's a good idea to be certain of what you're doing. To that end, you're strongly suggested to take courses on how to control a personal marine engine, what you can do on it, what you can't, and how you should care for it. If available, read the manual to learn even more about the subject before you head out.

Wear a Life Jacket

Even if you're an excellent swimmer, it's imperative that you use a life jacket while you ride the watercraft. You never know what accidents may happen while you're hitting the water, so increase your chances of getting out of them unharmed by wearing a proper jacket that's in good condition and that fits you.

Learn All the Laws and Rules

Believe or not, there are laws and rules about navigating on a marine engine, and you should know them before you go out on the water. For example, you shouldn't drive the machine if you're younger, and you shouldn't exceed the passenger limit. Also, learn the navigation signs and marks so you know what they mean.

Stay Alert While Riding

Speaking of following rules, remember to always keep your senses on the water. This means that you shouldn't ride when you've been drinking, when you're tired, or when you've been taking drugs. As you know, these can cloud your judgement and make you less responsive, which is not what you want when you're riding!

Have a Fully Functional Marine Engine

Needless to say, if you want to have a fun time while on the water, you should have a functional machine that will allow you to do just that. For that reason, you should take the watercraft you'll be using to a professional who can pinpoint any issues and fix them promptly. This way, your ride won't be ruined by a malfunctioning machine. You should pay special attention to your marine engine's oil. If you discover it requires a synthetic oil change, contact D&M Marketing, LLC to purchase the best AMSOIL products for it. Call (770) 312-7542 to find out how AMSOIL can save you time and money on your engine's maintenance.

Check the Watercraft Before Riding

Every time you want to ride the personal watercraft, you should go through a short, quick inspection round, just to be sure that you won't run into any trouble while out on the water. For instance, take a look at the fuel cap and the steering control just to verify that they're functional before hitting the water.

Be Aware of Those Around You

If there are other boats, marine engines, or vessels when you're navigating the water, make sure to maintain a proper distance, ride on your "right" when a vessel is coming your way, speed a little bit to pass other vehicles, and allow larger marine engines to pass you by. Again, sign into courses so you learn all of the marine etiquette.

 Bring Safety Equipment

If possible, bring safety equipment with you, as you never know when you might need it out on the water. For example, aside from having a life jacket for each passenger, you should also consider taking a small, waterproof first aid kit, a whistle, and a communication device (like a radio or cell phone). These will help you deal with difficult situations you may encounter.

Use Your Common Sense

Finally, if you want to have fun, as you stay safe, use your common sense. For instance, you should know that it's a bad idea to ride when the weather outside isn't right. Likewise, avoid speeding, or doing stunts when you're riding, as you could have an accident. As mentioned above, always keep your eyes on the "road" ahead, and notice the waves to make good decisions.
