Say you don't go over 100. Will need all PPE, dot physical, rope deflector, battery shut off, kill switch, throttle stop and numbers on boat and tow vehicle.:thumb:

really depends on how fast the boat is and the class you'll enter. curt gave you the general idea. but, for example, for ME and slower, you don't need a dot physical. for TE and higher, you will need the physical and also apply for a license. there can also be some additional boat requirements depending based on class.

Should be certified Lifeline, helmet restraint, snell approved helmet, ballistic shorts, t-shirt, long pants, vans, and last time they wanted it inside at the back of the boat. Jet away or pop off.

We run our battery switch next to the battery and have no problems, you will need to wear a long sleeve shirt also! Good luck! Tim
