Why is it always a tiny minority who ruin things for every one else?
Or just ban their ski from the slipway...

problem with banning the user is that if there are 3 or 4 mates all using one craft then thats 3 or 4 people who just re-register before you even have to start using pseudonyms.

No,ban the ski itself (they have to show registration numbers) not the user. It costs to get a permit and it's hard to sell locally if it can't be used locally

99% of all skis are datatagged aswell so they good as have their own registration/id number in obvious view that makes it easier to report the ski itself

Ok - but (1) it would be unreasonable for someone buying a ski not to be able to use it because the previous owner had been a tit. Imagine if you bought a car and were liable for the previous owners' misdemeanours associated with it (you could get points, parking fines, or if you bought it from JSP a couple of kids) (2) Given that there is no central registration of ski serial numbers / owners etc then how do you stop someone simply reregisterring the same ski; the enforcement isn't going to be easy.

The only way that works is if registration is expensive. That would almost certainly be across the board and penalise you too.

Pity there isnt some sort of 'stinger' for jetskis .. some sort of semi submersible tacks thrown in their path that gets sucked up by the drive would be good which then sink .. once they become saturated wheres me notepad and the patent offices number

I think the registration number stays with the ski and is keyed to the HIN. If you had to pay for a new registration on change of ownership...

There's always divine retribution of course:

"A car was almost swept away by the tide in Burnham-on-Sea when it was parked on the beach while its occupants tried out a new jet ski."
