I heard the MCA were going to appeal

I think the judge did not consider it a sea going vessel in that it was not capable of any passages , and it's ability to cope in rough water.

I think they can and do make passages and round the Island spings to mind and as it's ability to cope in the rough ,hmmmm ever heard of a Surf lifesaving RWC as used by the RNLI Beach Lifeguards , Austrailian Lifeguards, Hawaian ? Life guards , Canadian Lifeguards to name bt a few. It's one of the best rescue craft with a sled attached in the world for inshore work.

It is someones interpretation of the IRPCS and I think the MCA will win thier appeal.

It may increase local byelaws that could have a knock on effect for other craft we will have to see.
Any way thats my two pennies worth .

I think to compare it to a vessel they should look at the other kinds of vessel out there.

Personally I think that a jetski has far more in common with a canoe than an oil tanker.

Most craft are restricted by some extent by ability to manoeuvre - restrictions of draft etc etc - the jetski has none of these limitations.

I must add I have never had a jetski and dont really want one - it is just that I don't have any prejuidice against them.

As long as they don't hurt anyone other than their own kind let them carry on - if they injure somone else come down on them in exactly the same way you would on anyone else including a surfer who accidently hits a swimmer.

I hope they do win the appeal, You can't go around injuring people on the water and getting away with it!

I think you might find more people are killed by surfboards than sharks!

The only shark that has any relevance to this thread is the Fkkr that got the jetskier off
