    Guys, does anyone know the answer?

    get when re-boarding a pwc after a fall, how should it be rolled? from EN Bilgi.

    Reboarding a Capsized PWC

    Reboarding a Capsized PWC

    PWC are designed to turn over and that’s part of what makes them fun, but it’s also why it is very important that the engine cut-off switch (ECOS) is attached to the operator. After a fall, the PWC could be overturned completely. You should know how to right the PWC and how to reboard from the rear of the craft.

    Most manufacturers have placed a decal at the rear or bottom of the craft that indicates the direction to roll your PWC to return it to an upright position. If no decal exists, check your owner’s manual or ask the dealer. With this information, you should be able to roll the PWC over and reboard with little trouble. If you roll it over the wrong way, you could damage your PWC.

    It is a good idea to practice reboarding with someone else around to make sure you can handle it alone. Don’t ride your PWC if you are very tired because reboarding would be difficult. Also, avoid riding where there are strong currents or winds, which could hamper your reboarding efforts.

    Boater’s Tip

    Look for the decal on the rear of the PWC to determine the direction to roll it to return it to an upright position.

    PWC

    PWCs become more stable as they pick up speed. Do not exceed the manufacturer's recommended load capacities. When reboarding a PWC how should it be rolled? Reserve Fuel Tank: 1/3 of your fuel going out, 1/3 coming back and 1/3 in reserve.

    Stability

    The hull of a PWC is somewhat unstable while the craft is at rest in the water. PWCs become more stable as they pick up speed. The force of the water being propelled under the PWC and out the back adds some support to the hull during movement. Because typical PWCs utilize mechanical steering devices and directional jet nozzles to turn their craft, their center of gravity and pivot point are far forward and this can create an abrupt tail sliding instability problem.

    Load Capacity of your PWC

    Manufacturer's load capacities differ depending on the size of your PWC. Consult your owner's manual to determine your PWC's load capacity. Do not exceed the manufacturer's recommended load capacities.

    Reboarding a PWC

    Should you fall off your PWC don't abandon it. If it has not righted itself, turn it over. Most PWCs carry a label on the hull that indicates the direction that the PWC should be rolled. Be sure to right the PWC in the direction that the label indicates. If yours does not have a label, check your owner's manual.

    Approach the PWC from the stern and pull yourself up onto your knees on the boarding platform.

    From there continue to pull yourself back up on the seat.

    Be sure to attach the kill switch lanyard to the kill switch and to your body or PFD.

    Start up and get back underway.

    You should practice reboarding prior to operating the PWC to make sure you are able to do it alone. Remember, a PWC is less stable when idle in the water.

    Reserve Fuel Tank

    PWCs, like most motorcycles, are equipped with reserve fuel tanks that can be switched to if you run out of fuel. With proper planning, you should never have to use your reserve tank. Always plan your outing according to the 1/3 rule to avoid running out of fuel.

    Use 1/3 of your fuel going out, 1/3 coming back and 1/3 in reserve. (Do not count the reserve tank in this 1/3.)
