    Florida Age Change for PWC

    As reported by the AP Tallahassee: The Florida Senate voted 19-15 NOT to raise the age to 16 from 14 to operate PWC in the state of Florida!

    The bill was defeated and called "senseless" during debate. This bill was presented with it only being applied to Florida residents, out of state teens would still be allowed to operate watercraft at 14. This bill was offered by Democratic Senator Nan Rich, who said she was trying to save lives.

    Please educate yourself with the laws of your state for watercraft operation, some states require boating safety courses and testing to allow the younger operators of watercraft. Always think of safety FIRST when you go boating! Support AWA and any other association that watches out for safe and smart boating regulations.

    The boating safety courses that are offered are very interesting and most train you in navigation skills that work even when your GPS batteries die!

    See you at the races.
