If I knew how to change the topic of the thread I would,but I think you can only edit the content. Hope I didn't offend anyone. But at least maybe we are raising the awareness a little. It's a dangerous world out there,PWC's and boats( and canoes ) all have to be watched out for. That was my point.

You didn't say that they were ALL crazy.

I wouldn't worry about it.

If anybody was offended, then they must have included themselves among those you were talking about, instead of ignoring it because the description didn't fit them.

You don't need to change anything! You had a point and you made it, I'm sometimes a little sarcastic and it's hard for some to tell especially on a computer. I don't believe there's anyone on here that wants to see anyone hurt.

The secret is the smiley.

You can get away with almost anything that comes in front of a smiley.

Try it.

If you say "fund is a pr*ck" then I get mad.

But if you say "fund is a pr*ck " then I want to buy you a drink.

I think that when someone rides a jet ski for the first few times (more for some) you CAN get into a state of thinking no one is around you (maybe no one was when you started your playing). I have done it and have to keep reminding myself that I am not the only one on the lake. I am not a fan of jet skis, but an occasional ride is fun and refreshing. I think that a lot of people forget the rules of the water and don't pay attention to their surroundings, especially the kids. The best way I have found to avoid hitting the jet skis is to just aim for them, they are always gone by the time I get there .

What I think is worse are the a$$holes who zig zag pulling their kids tubing in the middle of the busiest part of the lake. Now how stupid is that? If one of the kids fell off, it would be like chumming for sharks.

I am sure there are plenty of people who don't like "those big, noisy, go-fast boats", but I would like to think that most of us work hard for what we have and try and treat others with some consideration. It's not a lot of fun trying to stay out of the way on "amateur weekend" and have fun at the same time.

That's my rant for now.
