What is it with these.......

*?<>>** jetskiers

Here's me and several other like minded boaters enjoying a lazy saturday and sunday afternoon anchored in a peaceful bay when along come 4 of the aforementioned to**ers who have nothing better to do than blast between us at a great rate of knots kicking up a hell of a wake in their path. Can someone advise the fun in that ! They're worse than bloody seagulls

with my eight years of jetskiing behind me now
i must make a comment even when me and my mate were out on our seadoo xp limited i hated other jet skis being near me they are so dangerous we have
seen so many new bikes smashed up due to the riders being unable to control
them. most have no insurance or training with the new bikes reaching 215BHP
it worries the life out of me

Having recently seen ‘Mater and Commander’ I quite like the idea of a cannon and although I wouldn’t want to spoil anyones fun I like the idea of jointing in by lobbing the occasional cannon ball in there direction.

Bl**dy Jetskis

I was at the Mumbles (Swansea) with my dear old mum yesterday, and even she commented on the stupid antics of the jetskiers.......there were about 8 paying absolutely no attention to the clear signs that there are access channels to the slipways and a speed limit of 4kts inside the buoys.

Also some of the 'other halves' really shouldn't be standing on the bottom of the slipways with babes in pushchairs 'waving daddy off' whilst other poor users are desperately trying to launch/recover their boats on a weed covered slip........

Makes my blood boil!

Chill guys! they're only trying to enjoy themselves too....
still, if it all gets too much, try a mooring line tied between two A frames between two boats travelling side-by-side in the opposite direction of the ski boys at about 45 knots..... No? Okay I'm only kidding...

Oh....and MeMe? If the bay you were talkin about was off The Warren, then it wasn't the jet skis causing the trouble on Sunday ... just a couple of louts in RIBS....
