Wave Runner Destroyed

Postby Yako » 12 Oct 2017, 13:37

A couple of Melb blokes in Shep in a nice new wave runner had to take evasive action while travelling in the wrong direction on Lake Nagambie :o

The exception that proves the rule?

Darwinism in operation?

At least they didn't injure of kill anyone else.

Positives? There's one less "$22,000 supercharged jetski" on the water this summer...

How is the tree?
I suppose they learned that there is a significant difference between harbour and arbor.

As usual the more powerful is the "vehicle".. the smaller the brain... and the penis. :clap:
Agree with Mingle.
The world is overpopulated. It is normal natural selection.

Old mates made a mistake, granted a fairly foolish one but pretty sure everybody has been guilty of that at some stage. I never understand the reasoning behind the digs when something like this happens.

Jetskies owners are 99% tossers. That's why.

We did a winery cruise a couple of years ago on the Goulburn from Nagambie and not one jetski adhered to the speed limits close to shore, they also showed no respect for other watercraft.
I am not sure if lack of brain cells is the cause of accidents or the result of it.
OK, we have all done something stupid at some time but these seem to think it is a base requirement.
My brother used to hire jetskis but gave it away after one season with all the costs involved in repairs as a result of stupidity and no regard for rules and regs.
