Rescue Water Craft Can Have the Following Limitations
RWC’s are fundamentally designed as recreational watercraft and is not specifically designed as a rescue or patrol vessel.  Use caution to operate a RWC in a manner consistent with the scope of training, operator qualification, and manufacturer recommendations must be observed at all times.

  • Weight Capacity (Up to 530lbs on 3 person capacity 2002+ models, we will overload)
  • Can capsize or sink/flood engine or storage compartments, lose/break/damage seats or hoods/latches
  • Limited equipment storage capacity, weight restricted
  • Limited crew capability
  • Operator lack of knowledge of situational awareness of craft efficiency and safe operations (Human Error)
  • Limited on board deck space for crew and patient(s)
  • Rescue board device changes trim capacity of vessel dynamics
  • Has a maximum towing load depending upon towed vessel size and environment
  • Has a specified underway range in transits due to fuel usage and weight load
  • Danger if operators and crew are not properly trained, outfitted and vetted
  • Risk exists if vessels are not properly maintained or retired when need be

WATERWAY TYPES OF USE

Rescue Water Craft can be used in the following waterways due to their hull designs and jet pump technology.  These vessels are highly maneuverable and can navigate where traditional vessels cannot operate due to certain conditions:

  • Open Water
  • Surf line/Impact Zone (6-8 Foot Wave height maximum)
  • Shallow Water Habitats
  • Flood Control Channels (seasonal conditions apply)
  • Swift water (scale of difficulty rated in classes)
  • Lake or pond
  • Special Use-amusement parks, movie sets (manmade facilities)
  • Floods (flushing, standing or receding)
