Waverunner!

I often wonder if these waverunner people would appreciate me riding my harley back and forth infront of their homes at 7am. I dont mind them being out and enjoying the water, but why do they have to pass within a few feet of my boat, when there is plenty of open water behind me?

Anyone else have issue with these waverunner folks?

My guess is that the only people who don't have issues with waverunners are the people who own waverunners.

Once, when I was teaching the underwater navigation section of an advanced scuba diving course, I'd set up an underwater navigation course with buoys, each of which was marked at the surface with a dive flag. A herd of waverunners decided that the buoys would make an excellent slalom run. Unfortunately, this was with an entire class of divers submerged underneath them.

Set up a few fishing rods with lines running every direction(no hooks) and have one w/ a 12 ought fishing hook in plain site daggling over board with a small tuna head on it ! Want take long for them to start thinking there could be more! might work! good luck..

Robb White was in favor of using them for slingshot target practice.
