    Very Funny Video.

    Not to make this topic into a bluewater network discussion, but I read this on thier site. (http://www.bluewaternetwork.org/campaign_pl_pwc.shtml)

    How true is this? This is what they say

    "Most personal watercraft are powered by two-stroke engines which dump 25-30 percent of their fuel unburned into the water. A two-hour ride on a jetski can discharge up to four gallons of gas and oil into the water."

    Well you have to consider other trash that's in the water, sewage, feces, urine, gas! So I could care less!

    That was correct 6 years ago. Not now.

    California is the worst when it comes to smog and regulations. The quote you gave is from California, but is only part of the whole picture. They didn't even include the entire sentence.

    http://www.dbw.ca.gov/TwoStroke/TwoStroke.asp


    Facts About Two-Stroke Vessel Engines

    * Two-stroke engines are not "banned" for use on all waterways in California, nor is there any plan to do so.
    * Carbureted and electronic-injection two-stroke engines are considered high-emission engines. Generally, these engines were manufactured prior to 1999.
    * A carbureted two-stroke engine can emit up to 25-30 percent of its fuel unburned into the water or atmosphere, which is why high-emission engines are prohibited on some lakes.
    * There are no salt-water or river restrictions in California on high-emission two-stroke engines, excluding personal watercraft (vessels such as Jet Skis) bans in some areas. For example, San Francisco has prohibited personal watercraft within 1200 feet of its shoreline. See "Local Restrictions" on our Web page for a list of lakes.
    * Direct injection two-stroke engines, made since 1999, are considered clean emission engines and can be used on every water body in California, with some exceptions not related to emission limits.
    * A new direct injection two-stroke engine will normally have a label sticker (with 1 to 3 stars) on its engine cover indicating that it meets California Air Resources Board emission regulations for 2001, 2004, and 2008 for vessel engine manufacturers.

    "San Francisco bans PWC from within 1200 feet of its shore line"

    How these cities, towns and counties get away with passing illegal laws is beyond me !! If there is no state law prohibiting PWC within 1200 feet of shore, there is NO law. Only the State has jurisdiction out to the 3 mile limit. Everyone else ends at the mean high water mark !!

    Not always, bays can be under the jurisdiction of the county, town or city. They usually "own" the bay bottom too. I was referring to the ocean coastline.
