SFJeff-
You are right on the money.
It's great you got one of the new 4 stroke models, i would do the same thing but i'm a stand up rider and they have yet to make one for stand ups.

It is the unresponsible rider that gives all jet skiiers a bad name, there have been numerous times i've motioned skiiers over and told them of rules they were not obeying, but if you are a considerate rider there's nothing like it, you feel like your one w/the water, its awesome.
