Another jet ski accident in Tampa Bay yesterday afternoon. Two guys riding together, one in front of the other, does a 180 in front of his buddy and his buddy slams into him. Don't know the condition of the guy who got hurt.

there's two things I stressed constantly on my x-GF about the Sea-Doo...

there's lots of water, you don't need to be close to any other craft at speed...
and make looking around you and behind you a constant, automatic part of riding.

She did very well.

I hope to hell I never have to worry about you working on my boat
Really something good to brag about! NOT
Humm, lets have a few drinks while test driving a boat I do not own! WTF!

Gee, wonder why boaters get such a bad rap. Not to mention boating service typically SUCKS. This is just a fine example WHY!
Sorry, but if you read into this what it is great, but when I pay for something, the last thing I should be concerned about is some drunk testing it.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and state that I think JCPerf was joking. I've never read a post of his that would indicate otherwise.....

Young girl swimming between two boats got her head crushed when the boats slammed together from wave action. Life flighted from our dock late SAT afternoon. Conley Bottom Resort, Lake Cumberland, KY. Same day a teenage boy on a tube got a pierced in the neck by a driftwood stick. Ambulance from the dock to hospital. Joe Murray
