    Photo's of Pwc crashes

    Craft + Co
    I am wanting some crash photo's for my hire site .Some info attached would be good as to how it happened.Need to be pretty graphic as I have trouble getting through to some people what can happen if the brain is left at the beach when they ride off

    Cheers

    Bernie

    Bernie,
    please don't take this the wrong way, but as soon as you put those photos up, there is a VERY GOOD CHANCE, that every anti-watercraft nut-case will be using your site against the whole community.

    These wack-jobs ruin it for decency and common sense.

    The only reason for the photo's is to make people realise that this is what happens when they crash .Cars have accidents and we use graphic images to shock people into believing that it does happen .I am not going to show every one ,just the users whom act like idiots or are looking to hurt someone .The talk I give at the moment most people don't like hearing either and I get a look of amazement to what I am saying so to back it up is what I need them for .Pm them to me and they go nowhere else .I assure you If this stops people from crashing then it is good for the industry
    I hope you understand



    Cheers

    When we witnessed a PWC accident it was pretty bad! No one was thinking of cameras only hauling the injured to the sheriff's station at the other end of the lake! Maybe you could contact Boat US and see if they will release some insurance claim pics? Z

    Fellow Greenhulk members
    It appears this information is going to be a bit difficult to get hold of.Which makes it hard for me to get the message across to customers that they can be dangerous if used in a reckless manner.
    I was under the impression that we are all on this site to help each other out with information etc .Maybe on this occasion our heads are a little bit in the sand or maybe crashes don't happen and I am scaring my customers for the wrong reason .
    I'm not looking for deaths just situations that have injured people or even damaged ski's I can make out that the riders have been Hurt
    Don't be scared people

    Cheers

    I don't know about the sand factor? I just don't think the pics are very common! if they were they would pop up on a google search but they don't! I was working next to a Ski rental place they always had damaged rentals maybe you could call around I bet they take pics of the Ski's!! Z

    Happy new year Bernie-Cheers to you and your family
    I found this hope its a start, its not very good but the 4th one is something I think your looking for

    Most of the crashes I've heard about and have witness one are simply a ski following a boat or another ski too close-

    By the way I'm in the market for a ski as in video #6 but beerdart probably will out bid me-LOL
