No hence the following sentence that you forgot to quote!
However its likely from what I've seen in real life and on this forum and others that the Jetskier will have been shouted at before for things (sometimes, but not necessarily always, justified). In which case he's unlikely to have realised the OP's protests were specific rather than generic anti-ski 'attacks'.
In contrast the only time I have (knowingly) been shouted at in a RIB was by someone looking for help, or on one occasion when someone thought I was the harbour master and offered me money! Accordingly if someone shouts at me in a rib I am inclined to go and speak to them.
