I was covering a party of shore divers a couple of months ago with a boat fishing across the entrance to North Landing nr Flamb hd, he saw what we were doing and that we had an A flag up and left, no rude jestures or abuse. This was very courteous which we appreciated.

Fifteen minutes later "Bellend 1, 2, and 3" (think that was their call sign) arrived on jet skis; full throttle past the cover boat and into the bay(posted this previously but it needs saying again) Given the in water visibility neither divers nor jet skiers had the slightest chance of avoiding eachother and we can guess who was going to come off the worse!

The point of this minor rant; be considerate and know the area your operating in. The jet skiers should not have been that close to shore, A flag etc etc. We are very aware of designated leisure areas usually buoyed off in yellow so we keep out of them. If fishermen are there (non buoyed area ofcourse) approach them first and ask them what there intentions are, come to an agreement even - !!

The problem is you never know when you might need help.

erm in Southampton well there has got to be a few ski zone because there was a lot of ski boats about or u can go in to a place with a nice bit of falt water and no outher boats about n not such a hard runing tide. if you are a not so good at skin i dont like ski zone because u have to have a lot of skill to keep out of the way of n the skill to get out the way quick and stay up at the same time.

Hmmm I'm sort of on the fence on this one which is unlike me as I'd normally slag yachties off.

I've had divers down and yachts, fishing boats and jet ski's getting a little bit too close for comfort, despite repeated blockings to get in the way of them and the divers and several heated discussions on the radio.

I've also been on a safety stop and had a yacht keel come flying out of no where and split four divers into two very nervous groups!

However I have been given the finger several times for motoring up (at full whack) through a "High Speed Craft Zone" from fishermen sat in the middle of the fairway.......which I consider to be their own stupid fault for being there in the first place.

If everyone behaved by the rules it would be a lot easier. But if the fisherman from Hannahs original post was on dry land, it was not restricted by speed limits in the area they were playing, they weren't endangering themselves or more importantly anyone else.....then I can't see a problem.

You don't go for a peaceful days fishing on a fast craft area and you don't get umpty when a fast boat utilises the area.
