    Rescue Water Craft - RWC
    Personal Watercraft is the recreational terminology used for PWC's when addressing the name of the vessel. For the purposes of occupational use in some circles the vessel description has been changed to 'Rescue Water Craft' or RWC to separate the name from an operational recreational mindset to professional conduct.
