Wow I'm very sorry to the parents who lost there daughter, but this was a case were a person who wasn't suppose to be riding a ski didn't know how to properly maneuver the ski . Collision ...... That's like blaming an automotive company for letting an unlicensed minor drive a car and have an accident it's not Yamaha fault.

Hmm, where is the off throttle steering for my boat. Sue them!!!!!!!
Call me an ass, but I'm tired of feeling sorry for these folks. Accidents happen and riders can be stupid.

+1 Sorry for the Parents aswell, I have seen many accident's happen this way sense 1998 once I witnessed a lady with her group of of 4 other ski's take off before them when they were walking to there skiis and she did a few large sircles then came back towards the others turned the ski let off the gas and jumped the hell off letting her ski fly into the other 3 SKiis and freinds it was crazy shit they all got hurt . I thought it was on the warning stickers on the ski ( will not turn with out throttle something like that )
WE got to shut up before they start making us wear helmets

What a bunch of BS. Riding illegally and without proper knowledge or training (we need a BOAT license here in Canada to ride a PWC, and you need to be 16). Inexperience, stupidity, etc. are to blame. Yamaha is not to blame, and I hope they appeal this. $15 million will not bring your child back.
I guess this is why my 2011 VXR has an off-throttle steering assist when going fast and letting go of the throttle. Next up will be airbags and seatbelts. Give me a break.

Ridiculous. And soon enough there will be a lawsuit because the off-throttle steering CAUSED an accident...."but, but, but I don't know what happened, I let the gas off and the ski just accelerated". You wait...it will happen.
