yep, I think both offences are arrestable, neither are endorsable.

Lets hope the house of lords see sense, sounds like this chap has a lot of money/no money to push an appeal like this through. My feelings are for the bloke who had his head smashed in, bet he isnt right yet.

What I'll do next time is act like an idiot whilst at sea then tell the coppers I wasnt on a voyage and was only playing. Now lets see; motorbikes everyone knows you cant go on a journey with them lets reclassify them as toys.

I do wonder what the complete judgement was, why is the part of it not being a vessel significant, unless there is to be another prosecution under a different charge which clearly, as he hit this poor chap he'd again be as guilty as sin of.

If a PWC isn't a vessel by law then are they legally able to ignore the rules on giving way etc...or can we just run over them when they act like morons and cut across our bows and buzz us?
"is this floating thing capable of killing someone when used recklessly'. "

This could apply to surfboards - body boards and canoes!!!

maybe I didn't get my point across properly, wouldn't be the first time!

what I am saying is punish water offences by attacking the boat drivers car licence. And if they haven't got one or are too young then do the same as you would for car driving offences

Are you serious!!! Why attack their car licence??? What if they have a pilot's licence - or a forklift licence - or a HGV licence - or a firearms licence - or maybe even their TV licence!!!

Makes no more sense to attack one than the other!!!
