I know it is not PC to say but in my youthful past I was helming a 6m Searider and witnessed a jetsier buzzing swimmers. I decided enough was enough so gave him his own treatment. The vitriol he gave me was quite edifying and my stoical reply was - I don't care but if I saw him doing it again I would run over the top of him. Needless to say might is right won the day that time.

It is unfortunate that the world of jetsis seem to have an overly large ratio of idiots involed. Indeed I thought one og the websites seemed to think that it was an unfortunate accident as he was an experienced power boater! There was one notable exception who stated he didn't want to be in a race with someone who couldn't even steer a PWC properly.

I for one am glad that the Scillies make it VERY difficult to own or operate one in these waters.

It seems entirely wrong that a few barely functioning cretins on jet skis should force more competent and responsible individuals out of certain bays or from particular stretches of water.

In fairness it is more likely just the world of anything that offers a lot of speed for relatively little money being an idiot magnet - buzzy little hot hatches attract more than their fair share of idiots as well. A powerful jetski is just like the Fiesta Turbo XR478i of the water really isn't it - driven by some moron with their hat on back to front whose total number of tattoos and piercings probably exceeds the number of words in their day to day vocabulary.

Ooo me prejudices are showing, I'd better shut up

I was merely getting down with several of my homies in my 'hood, before heading off to pop a cap in someone's bottom.

Innit.
