Give him a ring and encourage him to add to the harbours extensive network of CCTV cameras to the Baiter slip!
The 'new regime' certainly does get things done! I've had a reply which I'm very impressed with.Worth keeping the phone number below handy if you're launching there.

Thank you for your letter and complaint re PWs misbehaving at Baiter slipway.
PWs have been a problem in the Harbour since their arrival and every effort is made to moderate the over enthusiasm that mars the behaviour of even the most law-abiding PW rider.
We are hampered at present by the lack of our own PW, with the ability to pursue these craft on their own terms, although we hope to have a replacement shortly, but a telephone call to Harbour Control, 01202 440230, or a complaint to our PW permit salesperson and a request for help should bring a patrol craft onto the scene on weekday afternoons and all day at weekends.
The (usually) young man on duty at the hut is tasked with issuing PW permits and educating the applicants as to what is allowed and what is not. He always directs them towards the PW area off Brownsea or to the open sea, and warns them about their behaviour and the presence of patrol craft. His function is not to discipline offenders, but to educate and call for a patrol boat if there is need.
There are always new riders each season as this form of amusement is rather expensive and has a time limit for interest.
The main reason for making a nuisance of themselves around the slipway is to burn up remaining fuel before recovering the PW, hence they stay close. A word from a patrol craft usually calms them down a little, and I can only suppose that our man in the hut was not aware of the degree of nuisance being caused.
We will put a little more time in around Baiter with our patrols until the new riders are more aware

Looks like you have a decent response for once and they are aware of the problems ,,our local port authourity banned jet skis from using even our clubs private slip many years ago when we also had public day launching ,after a few were taking the piss when others were trying to launch/recover even to the extent of riding up onto the lifeboat slipway and [chillin out ]for a while as they say,,
The port auth said that as the main Tees shipping channel runs less than a hundred yards out they could not carry a decent enough anchor and line should one of them breakdown and start drifting into it ,

with regards to burning off excess fuel at the end of the day does this mean for 2 hours pratting about LOL.

Yes, well, uhm........ this lot (men with guns and boats) are often found whizzing about the harbour, but alas I've never seen them take out a PWC (personal water closet)!

Myself and Andy B had a issue last season when my wife (5ft nothing) held the boat while I fetched the van. Skier blasted the boat away from her but luckily the skiers mate saved it and bollocked his buddy for being a twat, not the first time though. Thing is, its the actions of the few that tarnish the many...

Never been there and I don't even know where it is but I would have thought another slipway for the jet skis sounds a good idea to me .

A little further away from the small boat launching area.

I think the main problem is they are PWC's and if 3 or 4 persons want to have a go two or three have to stay on the shore and tend to congregate around where the PWC was launched
awaiting their turn.

Unlike a rib were we all pile into it and leave the area.

Moral of the story; legislate to make people buy a proper boat

Answers simple if they don't follow the rules and cause a nuisance to other users seize their craft and crush it, a bit Alf Garnett but I'm sure it would work.

Why is it always a tiny minority who ruin things for every one else?
