Even been hit?
Well, I am wondering how many of you have been hit by another jet skier that was totally at their fault... I'm not talking about you, yourself getting hit, but more, your jet ski getting hit.
So today I was out riding and I ended up meeting up with a friend of mine who was down at his cottage. We went out for a little ride and it go to the point of him trying to splash me. I was standing still at one point and he comes in and tries to turn away to spray me and ended up smashing into the right front of my RXP (where the registration sticker is). Now I know he should not have been doing that, nor I "allowing it," but at one point he was 30ft away and the next he was 5ft...I couldn't do anything to avoid it as I was sitting still.
This crash ended up putting a huge crack in the body (wish I got pics). Luckily it's fiberglass so it can be fixed, but it just hurts so hard. He has told me he will pay for it and it was never the fact of money that hurts, but more of my baby is never going to be the same
I'm just wondering if any of you guys have been in the same situation with your babies? And how has the result of getting it fixed been? Has it always left a thought in your mind that although it might look good, it never will be the same again? Just talk

That sucks. It can be fixed. It will be just fine.

Thats just flat dangerous, and doesnt need to even be done in the first place.
NO one needs to be attempting anything like that especially if they dont know how to control the their ski obviously. It could have been worse and you guys get hurt.
