    No Powerturns, throttle down when you pick up riders, especially if your carrying lots of balast

    I now live on a private ski lake so this isn't as much of a deal for me anymore as it was when we were still going to and from the lake to play but ALWAYS check all your safety gear and life jackets before you leave to go have fun!!!!!

    Bring your own tools, prop and puller. Don't let your failure ruin other boaters day because you ask them to tow you in.

    ^^ Yes, BUT don't ever shy away from offering to help a fellow boater out. Karma or call it what you want - some day that could be you. Perhaps you get them going again and get to be somebody's hero even for a brief moment.

    Bring plenty of beer so in the event of a break down the party doesn't stop while you wait on a tow!

    Whenever the prop is spinning ensure the skier and their equipment is in full view of the driver.

    Always approach a person in the water on the drivers side of the boat.

    With Outboards and Stern Drives - turn off the motor when people are entering/exiting the boat.
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.
