sail445 I totally agree. There would be absolutely no enforcement. I for one would hate to see them running all over. Part of the charm of BVI is that you can find quiet anchorages and not deal with man made noise. We seldom even play music.

On the lake where we keep our boat the jet skiers ALWAYS go to the quietest cove to do their damage as to wakes and noise.

While I don't want to see (more)jet skis down there, the enforcement issue is a double edged sword. I've seen many boaters do stupid things there, powerboaters, sailboaters, drunken dinghy captains, with no enforcement either. Why would it be different for jet skis? Perhaps some enforcement for all is in order?

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it there if they do this, however, I'll leave it up to the folks that live there to decide. If I don't like it I'll find somewhere else to go.

Lift ban on jet skis
      #1628056 - 01/27/15 01:42 PM (107.72.162.83)

The reason it would be different for Jet Skiers is because most Jet Skiers aren't boaters, they're idiots

Strangely enough, that's what most of my power boating friends say about sailboaters..............and vice versa!

Actually most Jet skiers are neither sail or power boaters as windsurfers are not of the same mindset as paddleboarders

They were going to overturn the ban of Jet Ski's on Anguilla, and there was such a public outcry from locals and tourists, that they stopped that idea...for now.
