    Yes. Teather to the bottom hinge in case it breaks. Some did, and it would swing up and hit the driver in the face and head. Yummy!!!

    Thumbs up

    Thanks, CrazyA, will do the hood teather

    Also, I have my own seat strap update, I have lost my seat several
    times catchin big air in the surf. especially if you land backwards and
    inverted. Use some 2'' strap with quick tatch buckles and loop it
    under the rear handle between the 2 bolts on each side and tighten
    it down. I have seen pictures similar to this on a tow in surfers
    web site.

    PWC hinge could fail and permit the hood to separate from the deck. The hood could strike the operator and/or passenger resulting in personal injury or loss of control.
