Recently, our Ship was going to rent jet-skis for a fun-meeting. Years ago, PWCs were a craze in the Scout community.
Now, reviewing the Guide to Safe Scouting, #13 does not authorize them. Safety Afloat seems to have the same, and, the National Outdoor Riding Award reinforces not authorized for Unit use, but, Council use. Pg 74 of the Sea Scout manual for Safety Afloat reiterates the same.
Saying PWCs are not authorized does not sound like they are prohibited.
What is the policy for Sea Scouts regarding PWC usage at the Unit level?
Are PWCs prohibited?
Does “not authorized” mean BSA insurance cannot be used should an incident occur?
