It wouldnt hurt my feelings a bit if jet skis and wave runners were outlawed. At least make a mandatory hands on class they have to attend to be able to own. People get on those things and instantly turn into idiots!

They're everywhere. I'm hoping that my new EQ won't be a disappointment and after installed I'll be able to use the P.A. system to share some kind words with the lice that get too close.

Butter Cutters!

They are the most hated thing on the water. Most boats are looking for a place as far away from other boats as possible. They want to get as close as possible to other boats to jump the wake or just show off. I have no use for them . I like the safety course and licence requirement not just for PWCs but all boats. Lets add a drivers etiquette course as well.

Dude with his 7 or so yr old daughter decides it's a good idea to run right up behind the boat today while my 12 yr old is surfing. She turns her head and yells at him while I'm blowing the air horn at him. He was nice about it and gave me this cool, one finger wave as he drove past.

I watched as he and his rider went past and I kept my eye on them. Noticed they stopped in the middle of the lake for a swim. I timed it out perfectly. He got her back on board, and just about the time he was attempting to get back on his ski, I sent a 3ft roller towards him. Rocked that ski to about a 60 degree angle which launched him back into the water. I giggled to myself & returned the one finger wave. :)

I told the kids we were going to order some stickers that look like a jet ski with a big X thru it and we'd put them on the boat for each ski we flip or nearly overturn. Kinda like the fighter planes do under the pilot's canopy. :)
