Another tragic lose of life. I understand his body was found this morning and he did not have a life jacket on. If only he had been wearing it while using the seadoo things might have been different. Very sad.....

All three drowning victims had alchol in their systems.
an to not wear a life jacket on a jet ski is a vey stupid stupid thing to do, or to LET somone else do..

I think it is state law that you must wear a life jacket on a jet ski?

yes it is, along with a course on operating one. I have seen two people (on Seneca) this summer without PFD's and also operating after sunset with no lights!

Loc: Finger Lakes National Forest, ...
I have a large boat myself Jello, and I cannot count the times jet ski operators (usually 3 or 4 to a pack)
use my wake for a water ski ramp just feet off my port. Rarely do I see any of them wearing life vests.

when this behavior starts I stop my boat, depriving them of playing in my wake and usually get
(and give back) a few "birds". As soon as I start motoring again they are right back ...jumping my wake.

A VERY dangerous situation that I see them create with other boats as well.

Gotta have more Sheriffs on the waters .... only way I can see to stop that insanity.
