Which operation on a PWC requires more than idle speed?

Answer: Steering control


The operation on a PWC that will require more than idle speed is steering control.

A PWC is a personal watercraft that may be any jet ski, water scooter, or boater cycle. The jet boat will lose some steering control and maneuverability at low speeds with a modest amount of water pumping through the jet unit, causing it to quickly slow down and making it difficult to maneuver safely.

As the hull is detachable, its planning state and hull resistance are both improved. However, reducing the rear deflector somewhat and improving control can astonish loss of steering control at low speeds; therefore, an operator may enhance thrust while maintaining boat speed without increasing it by lowering the reverse deflector slightly.
