Red jet hit a jet ski

Just heading to the island on the red jet when a wake jumping skier ran into the ferry. His ski sank, but amazingly he looks uninjured. A few small boats and another skier rescued him and tried to tow the wreck away. Definitely a reminder of how dangerous wake jumping can be!

I think the title needs editing after all it seems the jet ski hit the red jet not the other way around?

If he had t-boned a smaller boat, it could have been significantly less comical.

I hope he is ok, but I also hope his jet ski is completely ruined and sinks to the bottom and also that he is prosecuted, they are a pain in the back side to all boaters around Poole especially in the main swash channel near the entrance, can you tell I dont particular like em ? Ive had far too many near misses with them, even had a few fall off in front of me after jumping other boats wakes.

I'm no fan of them either after my run-in with one at Baiter a few years ago.

It's getting time that registration of the ski included a basic common sense test.

I hate to say it but more people have died on other types of watercraft ( inc a style a lot closer to home ) , I'm not aware of any fatalities on PWC's??? So who needs the training and legislation - everyone?
