I can't imagine what any of them are going through.

Not certain how excited I'd be about getting back in a boat if that were us.

I hope your friend, along with all others involved, will be ok Chris.

I feel for all parties involved it has to be a horrible experience. I own personal watercraft as well as a powerboat. Stupid people drive all of the above. I have been cut off by cruisers, powerboats and personal watercraft. I know plenty of Dumb A$$es with a ton of money that can buy any boat they want and cut people off all day on the lake. Everyone needs to take responsibility for their actions on the water and land.

I drive my boat in such a way that jet ski will never
get within 30 ft of it.

Or, if I am in situation where it is impossible for me
to do that, I throttle down and go to neutral.

It's simple, a vessel not under way has the right of
way. Should the idiot hit me while I'm in neutral the
fault should be clear.

I need to keep reading but that's my little brother that was killed, I wasn't there not sure what happened.
If donzi I driver is around I'd like to talk to him, much love bro, things happen and I don't blame you. He was 19.... I never blamed you neither did family far as I know.
It really put thing in a spin but I don't think you was blamed. I put myself in your shoes and it was harder then mine. Drew probly ****ed up, please man live your life.

If anyone has info please let me know.

how can you talk so bad about jet skiers when how many people have gone out with deep pockets of cash, (or credit), and killed themselves in a power boat

Responsible PWC riders are fine. The problem is that many don't follow the rules and they often don't look before turning. Some also over estimate the top speed of their craft and try to race. I just speed up to get away from them. I love riding jet skis but I am always looking around, just as I do when driving my boat. I don't hate them. They are lots of fun but they don't belong in the hands of a rider who has no clue about boating.

Your saying its better because its cheaper to kill yourself on a jet ski? I don't think you are going to persuade peeps here to talk nicely about PWCs, although its not the PWC its the idiot driver.
