    Brake Light For PWC???

    I received a new catalog from Overton's the other day. They have a new product for PWCs, a brake light.

    At first I thought it was for the trailer, but no, it's for the boat!

    Does anybody ride directly behind another PWC??? I thought that was one of the first things you learned; the boat doesn't have brakes, so always ride to one side of someone that you're following.

    The pwc brake light has been around for awhile. However, I've never actually seen one in person. IMHO it's a gimmick.
    You've got the right idea. Ride safe.

    I would be interested, just because the 25' Bayliner with the 14 yr old driving WOT behind me would know if I was slowing down

    they work but are still a little expensive the. aqualuma kit lets you choose the type of light for the contour of the ski.they work well i had one on my old xp.

    I thought it was a gimmick until you brought up the 14 yr old in the bayliner. Excellent point there bud. When i get someone in a boat i don't know and definetly don't trust I will usually turn in a direction to get out of their way for the simple reason of alcholol levels.
    Too many forget to engage the brain before they turn the key on.

    I have a good friend that was run over by another ski from behind and seriously injured. I'm not sure if a brake light would have made a difference, but I do think they are a good idea. I'm surprised we have not seen a stock ski with one by now.

    How do they work? Off the throttle?

    they have a solid stste inertia sensor it them.thats the expensive part.it detects the skis change in foward motion and triggers the light.
