    Help with a PWC related school research study.

    Alright GH I need your help with a research final for my college course. I thought there would be more information than I actually found and I can't switch now so I'm looking for as much input as possible before tuesday. If you could answer the following questions to the best of your ability that would be awesome. Applies to tropical island pwc rentals.
    How did you arrive on Vacation? (Country)
    1. Airplane
    2. Cruise ship

    Have you ever rented a Personal Watercraft while on Vacation?
    1. Yes
    2. No
    If so, list from 1-5 which is most important to you:
    _ Watercraft (Performance, Handling, Condition, Storage)
    _ Rental Time (Rental options, 1 hour, 3 hour, half day, full day, full week)
    _ Tour visits (Snorkelling areas, ship wrecks etc)
    _ Cost
    _ Post-Ride activities (Beach Bar, Beach sports, alternative rental)
    _ Other (specify) _____________________________
    Would you rent Personal Watercraft (again) on your next vacation?
    1. Yes
    2. No if so, why?
    3. Depending on location/Offerings
    In your opinion, what was one thing that could have been improved in your rental experience.

    Thanks

    The watercraft were well used and slower than I thought.

    OR

    Customer service could be better.

    The majority of rental watercraft are very basic models, often with purposely reduced engine power. Equipment tends to be older models with very high running hours and generally worn and overly used condition. Hull handling and steering is often sloppy and generally offers an unrewarding riding experience, especially for experienced riders who have their own watercraft back home.
    3. Depending on location/Offerings


    In your opinion, what was one thing that could have been improved in your rental experience.
    A focus on the quality of the riding experience, not low cost or short duration rental.
    Tight restrictions on travel distance away from the rental location are often imposed.
