Your roving reporter has the latest flash: That bozo now lives in Southport, Qld, and drives a big Riviera. His extended family
has joined him, some with more Rivieras, and some with 500 hp jetskis. I think that all you folks still in the USA should be very grateful to the lenient bozo immigration laws here in Oz.
And I reckon that the aggressive egg and paint ball approach is pushing the limits of self defense a bit too far. What I recommend is buying
a bunch of cheap
floating polypro line, cut into about 50 foot lengths, and with a monkey's fist on one end. When the bozo is nearly alongside, throw a chunk of the line across his bow. He'll ride over it, and with any luck wind
it up between his huge props. The wake will rapidly subside, perhaps too late to help you, but saving the next honest sailor down the channel.
Also works with waterskiers who use your anchored vessel as a turning mark.
