PWC's

Hi All

I have been looking at 'Boatlaunch' sites and a few state no PWC's could someone enlighten me as to what these are, as I have Zodiac Futra and want to be able to launch from a beach or harbour.

Regards
Mark

I wondered how long it would take before someone posted a negative opinion about PWC's I run a rib and a ski, the last #rsehole I witnessed on the Solent endangering lives ( only a few weeks ago ) was driving a rib, it an't the craft , it's always the human element

But PWCs are readily available for rent so it allows for a higher percentage of idiots to use them.

Err, it was a lightweight tongue in cheek self deprecating comment, don't take it too seriously!
