An -ahem- interesting take on the accident from some Bournemouth Echo readers:

I am hearing a different account of who hit who , i think the echo had better find the truth quickly and then print the facts.

we are hearing from a marine police source the lad fell off the back of the ski taking the dead man switch out ,cutting the engine and the sailing boat hit him?

I saw the damaged yacht in Poole today, the picture in that Echo report does not do it justice. The damage is horrible and to think a Jetski + human were responsible. The impact speed must have been enormous. The fact that the driver is alive is amazing.
Howver, I still think they should prosecute, to set an example to others.

Not the kind of damage it'd get running into a stationary jetski then?


I read the Echo article.

Mmmm .... <Bump>?

You would think the difference between hitting something at 6 knots and 50 knots is probably fairly obvious even to the average reader of the minor tabloid press

And I assume you mean SSR number, SSRO is the Solent Sea Rescue Organisation...anyway jetskis wouldn't have SSR numbers

Reminds me of the old Jasper Carrott sketch with car insurance claims.

....And judging from recent posts on the YBW forum, there should be a few posts here from new members defending the jetskier any minute...

Cheers

Loving some of the exchanges between those who obviously know what they are talking about and the partially brained, this is a classic

Is that basic enough for you, or shall I give you a nice anaolgy like 'the one that goes broom has to get out of the way of the one with the tall sticky up thing with big bits of cloth on'

I'm quite appalled that the Birmingham Navy appears to have this shocking level of ignorance.
