Before HATCHETT and COX, Circuit Judges, and HENDERSON, Senior Circuit Judge.
United States Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit.
HATCHETT, Circuit Judge:
These appeals require that we determine whether a "jet ski" is covered by the Limitation of Liability Act, 46 U.S.C.App. §§ 181-188 (the "Limitation Act"). The district court ruled that a jet ski is a pleasure craft and that pleasure craft are not properly covered by the Limitation Act. Although we agree that a jet ski is a pleasure craft, we hold that pleasure craft are covered by the Limitation of Liability Act.
