last season down at buchan beach the council jet ski was on the water patrolling
this seemed to send the right message out.
to be honest the jet skiers down there stick to the speed limits within the yellow buoys.
unfortunataly it only takes one idiot to type cast them all

The Harbour staff probably have to go on a course in order to get a step ladder out, yet cannot do anything about a life endangering situation right under their nose.

Trouble is, in Poole it's as many skis next to the slip playing the pratt as you see out for the whole of the rest of the day.

Hi Nos,

Good letter but would be better if you had found out who the Harbour Master is and addressed it to him. A "Dear Sir" might not get to anyone. You can then phone him after a week asking why no reply.

Also, it doesn't ask a question - so doesn't need a reply. Better to ask what procedures they have in place to prevent the behaviour you've seen etc.

I quite like the TV presenter angle suggested. Sally Simmons at ITV south would be interested in a jaunt down to Poole I reckon.

It worked for me!

Had a problem in Cowes during Cowes week a couple of years ago - trip boats berthing agressively next to the rib pool. Broke my light mast off the A frame. Sent an e-mail to the Harbour Master at 0200 when we got home and had a reply by 1000 in the morning promising to have more staff down there - and there were!

That's good to hear!

Does anyone else who's had problems there fancy emailing them? The email is harbourmaster@phc.co.uk (freely available on PHC site, so can't see any problems with posting it here) and his name is Cdr Peter Booth.
