Operating positions

After you are underway, you may choose
to kneel or stand, depending upon water-
craft speed, your skill level, and your prefer-
ence. Here are some guidelines.
EJU01291
Kneeling
It is easier to maintain your balance when
kneeling than when standing. This position
is suggested when traveling at sub-planing
speeds. (At sub-planing speeds, there is a
wake, but the watercraft is moving through
the water rather than skimming on top of it.)
NOTE:
@
At very slow speeds, it may be necessary to
support your upper-body weight with your
elbows resting on the gunwales, trailing your
legs in the water.

Standing
After you are comfortable handling the
watercraft from a kneeling position, try
standing as the watercraft gains speed. Sta-
bility increases when you are traveling at
planing speed. When you are moving slowly,
or preparing to stop, you will probably need
to return to the kneeling position to maintain
your balance.
