I hate jet skis too

The Port Department this week met with New Providence jet ski operators to outline policies to “deal with the nuisance” their craft cause, with Exuma-based bonefishing guides warning that efforts to establish similar businesses on their island could jeopardise the $13 million earnings they have generated over the last 15 years.

Seems some folks in the Bahamas are none too keen on Jet Skis mucking up the bonefishing business. I can’t say I blame them.

I don’t get the point of a jet ski. They are loud, stir up the bottom and generally annoy anyone who isn’t riding one at the time.

Hitler liked Jet Skis… just say’n.

  1. The only things as annoying as jet ski’s are boom boxes, dirt bikes and snowmobiles.

  2. Oh yeah, and zombies.

  3. Zombies are especially irresponsible on the back of a jet ski.

  4. Anarchy afloat. The idiots won’t out into deep water because they think that’s where the sharks feed. NO MOTOR zones don’t apply to them and a guy standing on a flats boat isn’t fishing. Gunga Din, please pass the Barrett M82.

  5. Remember that great Scott rods add, of the jet ski guy connected to the business end of a Gotcha? Pretty much illustrates what we all feel.

  6. I watched a kid running circles in front of a buddy down in the Keys this summer. We were 2 boats in line for migrating tarpon, staked out on a perfect spot and here come these kids running circles like 50 yards in front of him. So he pulled stake and we all were about to head off when the kid runs directly at the key we were sitting off of and runs his jet ski hi and dry in about 2 inches of water on a falling tide. Happened right in front of us; best thing I ever saw.

    I wanted to get video, but we were already planed off and running. That would have made the most popular fly fishing video ever.

    Anyways, our buddy boat drops off plane and pulls over to the kids. I thought, “No WAY he’s going to help them, right?” Nope! He just said, “Hey, you know you can get a huge fine for running aground in a no-motor zone, right? Well, see ya.”

    That is awesome.

  8. We were staked out on a flat in a NO MOTOR zone and waved off several jet skis during a falling tide. Just as we ran out of tide & fish two very, fat, greasy, dudes pull up on their PWCs 20′ feet from us and give us the evil eye. We just ignored them and got the hell out of there. Who knows what may have happened if anyone of us had DARED to point out where they had crossed the NMZ. Most likely the previous PWCs had complained about our wave off “behavior” to these knights errant.

  9. Glad to see other humans sharing my feelings against this disgrace – and pointing at legal or environmental arguments to curb it. What a cretin’s toy! Ugly looking, ugly sounding, and polluting. They look like farting toads crouching on a dildo.

  10. Jet skis: the unfortunate result of an ill-advised breeding between an airboat and a motorcycle. Go fast. Make noise. Act stupid.

  11. Hate doesn’t cove it. In the mangroves casting at snook when two a-hole on jets skis decks to do circles in this quiet lagoon. I thought about the moss berg mariner to solve the problem but where to dump the bodies
