It could turn nasty and judging by the shape of most of the ribbers at last years SR gathering, we'd be in for a pasting.

A battle of wits might be safer, the Jetskiers would be going in unarmed.

all our access to launch off the beach between hythe (kent) and folkestone has been closed. when i asked local authorities they said it was due to jet skis breaching the water safety rules.

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.
He's a decent bloke who won't put up with it, the sun is out and the water bourne idiots are out in force!, It p's you off when you do everything correctly and see the brainless twunts 5 yards from the slipway.

It occurs to me that as we are in the throws of election silly season there may be an additional window of opportunity. Why not copy your email sent to PHC to all the prospective parliamentary candidates for Poole (listed below)

Liberal Democrat Phillip Eades
BNP David Holmes
Independent Ian Northover
Labour Jason Sanderson
Conservative Robert Syms
UKIP Nick Wellstead

Knowing all election candidates they are dying to find a bandwagon to jump on to give them an edge. If it raises the profile of the problem you may get a bit more reaction from PHC (who prefer to avoid the limelight at all costs - IMHO)

Just a thought

i have 2 jetskis and have had them for years, its thru idiots like this that causes me issuses with finding places to use them. boats have been in my family for years so we have a good understanding of whats right and whats not. i wish other users of jetskis would understand the shit they cause as it effects everyone. personally i would have gone over and banged their heads together for doing what they did. the trouble i find tho is if it was a boat doing the same no one would spend the time to say about it on here but every time its a jetski people want to tell the world

I think if you search the forums you'll find hardboats, wafis, and even some ribs being criticised at various times.

I think Peter Booth retired a couple of years ago.
Brian Murphy is now the harbour master and has a reputation for 'getting things done'!
Give him a ring and encourage him to add to the harbours extensive network of CCTV cameras to the Baiter slip!
