No.3 on the Chav lottery winners wish-list. Jetskiers have the worst rep. of all water users.

Oooooh another idea for a shiny toy - could I get one as support vessel for our RIB - do you think hubby would buy that suggestion

Actually did consider one of these before getting the RIB then decided I better learn to walk before running - but I'm getting the impression they are a lot of fun

Hey Stul,
Getting stuck on a sandbank, running out of fuel, running out of two stroke oil, losing diving weight belt to the seabed , anchor not holding, dropped head cam and broke it, only thing you didn't drop is your bus pass , and all in the same trip.

Wouldn't worry about mid life crisis if I were you mate, I would be worrying about Alzheimers!!!

You are not wrong, but please don't tar everyone with the same brush, there are responsible owners of jetski's out there

You normally find it's the a*******s racing close to the shore line that have a total disregard for others and more often than not have no form of training which are giving responsible owners a bad name.

Any chance we can move this to "The Bilges"?

Alternatively you could buy a Thundercat!

NO. I think Stull would rather it end up there though.
