Since I feel I should explain myself: I have always had a deep seated hatred for jetskis, or more accurately the absolute morons that ride them. Probably has to do with all the wakeboarding I used to do when I was younger and the inevitability of some kook on a jet ski riding up right behind you trying to jump your wake. Or maybe it's all the regattas I have sailed in Banks Channel with kooks on jet skis who don't know the first thing about the "rules of the road" on the water--buzzing by within 3 feet of your boat, weaving in and out of the fleet, etc... Or maybe it was that one regatta where my friend's little sister (12 years old at the time) got t-boned by a jetski while sailing her Laser, resulting in plates and pins in her femur (that dude was lucky the Coasties were nearby to regulate--he would have wound up on the bottom of the channel along with his kookcraft... at least the Coasties let us have a little fun before they drug the guy onto their deck)... Or maybe it was that one time surfing at Mase when some idiots decided they were going to do tow-ats amongst everyone else surfing...
I dunno, maybe I'm a little biased. But you can ask anyone who has spent a considerable amount of time on the water what they think of jet skis and you will probably get the same sentiment.
Whatever you do: Take a freaking boating safety course, First Aid and CPR before entering this endeavor. You'll probably need them all...
