  1. Geez you have really out done yourself with that stunningly spectacular bit of KMism waffle! Well done you 👍
  2. 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.
  3. If you took the title of this thread litterally then maybe you have had a little too much internet?
  4. You escalated that quickly!!! I didn't get that sort of vibe from this thread and I'm really not sure why you did? That aside, a little person swimming behind the boat wouldn't stand a chance if this guy comes hurtling along unannounced. I personally have nothing against jetskis and have even considered getting one myself for fishing (perfect for getting over the shallow bar where we keep our caravan) but they need to be operated sensibly so that they don't excessively impact on other peoples enjoyment of the water.

    One or two sails with someone experienced will give you the basics and from there it is just a matter of building your own experience and confidence.

  7. And another.... [FLASH NEWS] At 1900 UTC Sam Davies (Initiatives Cœur) informed her team that she hit an unidentified object. She is slowly heading north and is inspecting her boat to assess damages. Sam is safe and uninjured. #VG2020
  8. Great outcome. At one stage it sounded like he was a goner when they lost contact. Do these boats have a minimum weight?
  9. If he didn't have bad luck he would have no luck at all.
  10. Wow that is good to know.
  11. Are they really produced market specific? I would have thought registering the epirb with beacons.org.nz would make where it came from irrelevant?
  12. Seems that they may have pushed the envelope a bit too far. According to the engineers the repair should be as strong or stronger than before. Personally I would be wanting to hear the engineers say "significantly stronger than before"
  13. Syndicate owned Piedy would surely be the best bang for buck.

    Is it worth looking at anything else? Everyone seems to use it all over the world and the price seems ok but that is about the extent of my knowledge on the subject...
