Newbie to the watercraft world :)
Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself..My name is Sharon and I am purchasing a 2007 VX Crusier and picking it up on Wed. I have never rode one before so this should be interesting to say the least. I'm looking forward to ridding excursions with my hubby RXT-X 4 Me. Any pointers you guys can give me would be helpful LOL

welcome to the board Sharon.
all your questions can be answered here, if you want to get a head start try using the search function built into the board as there is lots of information already posted on the questions you will have. Make sure you use the advanced search feature so you can specify the Yamaha forum as the search target, you will get better results this way
good luck with the new toy.

I'll start with a few pointers, hopefully, others will chime in, too.
Remember, you really need to have power applied to steer these things. I don't know if your model has steering with the power off, but I'm sure it's not as effective as when power is on.
Don't forget to put the plug in before launching! Sounds silly, but we've all done it...
If you run the engine on the flush hose, NEVER turn on the water unless then engine is running! Turn off the water, THEN turn off the engine. Having the water running when the engine is off can damage the engine severely.
Avoid shallow areas. There's no external propeller, but these things act like vacuum cleaners and can suck debris off the bottom in less than 3 feet of water.
Know which way to turn the craft upright if you should flip it upside down. Turning it the wrong way can get water in the cylinders, causing damage.
It's fun to spin & jump, etc. However, make sure you have plenty of room so you don't hit anybody or anything! Always look behind you before doing anything drastic.
