Jet ski saves the day

Not that I love Jetskis or stink boats. But this guy has some balls and did a great job. (video half way down the page)

There was another one on you tube about the same but with different boats.

Re: Jet ski saves the day

Most jetski operators are pretty sensible. And jetski's don't make too much wake either.

We were "saved" by one last year, when a rented houseboat tried to anchor on top of us, then hooked up our anchor and took off with us in tow. The guys in the houseboat seemed to think we were chasing them, we were standing on the foredeck yelling at them to stop. Pretty sure they didn't understand english...

Anyway, a guy on a nearby boat had a jetski, jumped on it and stopped the houseboat, then came round and unhooked our anchors. Have to say, 'till he intervened we weren't exactly sure how we were going to stop the houseboat driver.
