Jetskier Jailed

Regular readers of this blog will know that about the only class of water user that I hate with a vengeance are jetskiers. Thanks to Boating Safety Law and News for posting a link to this story about a jetskier who rammed a fellow idiot aquatic chainsaw rider, injured him and then fled the scene. Looks like his stupidity is going to cost him 90 days in jail, and fines and costs of around $50,000.

That's the way to treat 'em.

Or this.

Once the jail sentence commences it will likely cost him his manhood as well...

Proud to say that even though I have my licence, I have not been on a jetski since.

Laugh out loud funny!

The other thing I hate is water ski drivers who don't know the dive flag.

There's nothing worse when ascending back to the surface than seeing the sharp edge of a spinning propeller going over one's head!

At least Carol Anne's boat won't be bothering people or threatening divers with a spinning prop - she removed the outboard from her Etchells 'cause she doesn't need a stinkin' motor any more. ... we're just keeping it on shore in case we need it again to get the boat on a trailer in tricky conditions and can't scull or line the boat on.
