    Default water fights?

    I was having lunch in the middle of the lake here last weekend and one of my so called mate's decided to crash my little party by driving past us with his OB engine trim up and yes we got wet. Well lunch was a write off and he was coming back to make another pass so I hit the key with the pedal mashed and with my jet trimming up.
    It was a bit of fun at the time but there was a lesson learned. Don't have a water fight with a jetboat lol.
    I feel bad for doing it now because his boat now has no windshield oops.

    Has anyone here had a jet boat water fight?
    I know now it is a silly act.

    Default water fight

    that sounds perfectly acceptable to me .. he started it and you finished it.. busted windscreen or not , maybe you can help him install the new one to help you feel better . over a few cold beers

    I offered to help fix it but he is still cranky. I think he is more worried about his pride than the boat.

    sounds like he was askin for it. to bad about the windshield but no one hurt its all good!! this last summer 4th july on the lake they have a boat parade so we got in line my buddy and his crew kept blasting us with big squirt guns so I got in position and trimmed up foot down and blasted him off his pontoon funny as hell!!! And the crowd goes wild cheering us on to do it again. his pontoon and him took no damage just his pride and we stayed dry for the rest of the parade. someday your buddy will laugh about the whole deal after he fixes his boat Im sure.

    Default years ago

    this happened years ago at skiatook lake. me and freinds were anchored having a few beers and kids on the bank, cliffs actually, started hollering at us wanting a ride. we ignored them so they started throwing rocks at us. as we left, we washed them off the cliff into the water. ice chests, chairs and all.

    then there was the time in about '89 I got reprimanded by the water patrol for squirting a little too close to the bar at sundance.

    I've gotten a jet skier before for continuing to jump my wake too close for my liking to my boat, did it ever catch him off guard on his 4th approach to my wake!! hahaha I'm still laughing from it!!

    At Needles, I had a jetski 'splash' me, he soaked the boat, Raybans went flying, etc. 2 quick turns later, and he was swimming down river for his ski, the wind knocked out of him. He wont do that again. Ive also had the 'follow in my wake' thing too, but a quick 180* turn will always stop that.

    Great stories for sure!! Also forgot that I've blasted off a tuber before when I first got my jetovator, he said it felt like hitting a brick wall and he instantly went flying!! I felt so bad that I let him drive and blast me off for payback (luckily he didn't know how to do it perfectly!! hahaha).

    Also did a fly by on my bro in law while he was having an important phone conversation on the beach at the river last summer!! Had my wife and my sister in the boat when I decided to give it a try and boy oh boy did I not realized that I was gonna get him completely, that water flew so far and just nailed him!! hahaha So wish I had a gopro or something to record the moment, absolutely hilarious......at least for us!!

    Also had 2 other fly by's trying to hose people on the beach that failed on me, ended up turning too sharp just to have me wash out and swamp my boat with a ton of water over the bow!! One of these times ended up being with another bro in law when he was dating a snobby chick that was fully clothed with jeans and such. Needless to say she was fully pissed and I couldn't stop laughing for quite a few minutes, she was sooo soaked!! hahahaaha

    Default Not a jet - BUT

    Had a real high X on the Glastron CVX-18 ( 3 inches below pad )
    Up at Hardy Dam - what used to be PARKERS LANDING - the bridge over the river.

    Had a low life fisherman fishing in the middle of one of the center spans. ( where the boats go under ) Wasn't no wake then.
    Told him that what he was doing wasn't safe for the boaters or the skiers. He told me to F off.
    Went up river, turned arround, got to cruising speed and trimmed the drive a little higher than normal. Ducked down as we went under the bridge and nailed it.
    To say the guy was pissed was an understatement.
    Threatened to call the cops. I told him to go ahead.
    That boat could throw water almost like a jet boat.

    I dislike bad language and rude people.
    Sounds like he got what he deserved. By the sounds of it he properly needed a shower or a cool off.
