NOTICE TO PWC2 RACERS:
PWC Age Requirement Lowered
The LODBRS Rules Committee has lowered the minimum age requirement, for PWC 2, from 14 to 13 years of age. Please refer to Rule 7.3.3 (pg 28), in the 2014 rule book for details. Please note that riders under the age 16 are required to have a state approved boaters safety course, if available in their state.
Rule Changes for 2014:
Go to the Tech & Safety page for a quick reference of this years rule changes.
Check your Driver’s License / Physical expiration date, capsule dunk date and safety equipment recertification dates: Jackets, Blower Restraints, Seat Belts, (if due, you might consider a 6/7 point system) and Helmets. Snell 2000 helmets are no longer approved. Please note that all drivers and boats participating in any LODBRS, ADBA, CDBA, KDBA, SDBA or SLDBA event, regardless if the association you belong to is affiliated with LODBRS or not, will have to be in compliance with all the rules contained in the 2014 LODBRS Rulebook.
LODBRS will continue Capsule Recertification Program this season, along with sonic testing of cages. If you don’t have, or are missing a SFI sticker, let us know, and we will assist you in getting them.
“J” type latches are no longer approved. They need to be replaced with a “striker” type system. A water detection switch, which may or may not turn on bilge pump, located inside the capsule, in plain sight of the driver, is now required. Knee and Shin protectors are required in all Capsule boats.
Check the expiration dates on your air bottle(s) - ‘VIP’ (visual inspection – due annually) and ‘DOT’ (hydrostatic insp. – due every five (5) years). Stage one (tank) and stage two (helmet) systems need to be inspected/rebuilt by a dive shop or mfg., every three years.
Pump Loaders, Props, Prop Shafts:
These need to be dye checked regularly. We experienced failures last year. Not only is your safety at stake but also that of your opponent and the race officials.
There are downloads available on the website www.lucasoildragboats.com for Capsule, Boat and Driver Safety Inspection, and LODBRS Safety Inspection Sheet.
Generator and RV Generator Exhaust:
Open Boat Kill Switch Lanyards:
The Lanyard should activate the kill switch anytime the driver’s posterior travels more than 18” from the sitting/ driving position. Check your lanyard and be aware that a ‘coiled type’ lanyard can stretch further than 18”, allowing the driver to be further in harms way.
