  1. I know if it were me on that jetski I wouldnt be 100% confident that I would pick up on a small head or someone surfacing while snorkeling hence why there are rules around speeds close to shore and other boats. There is plenty of water about for everyone so no need to be fanging it metres away from other boats.

  2. Well imagine if your kids are swimming around the back of the boat and the jetski comes around the front. So yes, it's obviously dangerous. It is also illegal and ignorant. The 5 knot law applies 200m from shore and 50m from other vessels. Clearly this guy doesn't know, doesn't care, or both. And to calm down those who would suggest murder would be a disproportionate response, I'll spell it out: the topic post was tongue-in-cheek. Take a breath. Breaking legs - too much?

  3. I totally agree but here is the rub; other peoples enjoyment of the water might be different to ours. If you think about it there is the safety side and its just thoughtless to hoon around moored boats for that very reason. Jestskies are a bit of an affront to birdsong in a quiet bay but to some people going for a burn on glassy water is their idea of a really good time and who am I to impose my values on them as long as they stick to sabres advice above.

The whole outside of the Western pontoon at Orakei marina is for public pickup/dropoff too but it is very shallow. It would be good at high tide. There's a lack of cleats but there are a few rings to tie onto. The gate to that and the fuel dock (inside the end of the same pontoon) is locked at night but should be open in the daytime (the marina is required to provide public access to that pontoon so complain to security if it's locked). 4. The pontoons at the landing boat ramp on the

  6. I'm confused. Is the problem a jetski going too fast? what has that got to do with discussing the murdering of someone? Jetski's are a known problem. There is also a known system of dealing with them. Getting all vigilante is one thing, and I understand the frustration around jetski's. But are you guys actually discussing the justification of homicide cause someone is going too fast on a jetski? What are you going to do? walk up to someone at the boat ramp and attack them with a filleting knife? Just breath in, breath out, count to ten, and get some perspective....
