It’s no stretch to say fishermen and casual boaters don’t like jet skiers.
Let’s face it: jet skiers can be an obnoxious bunch. Buzzing shores, spraying boats, and just generally being loud.
But this one takes the cake.
An aggressive jet skier was going to buzz this guy’s fishing boat, but lost track of his machine and rammed the front end of the boat.
This video is an important reminder to wear your life jacket and always be aware of your surroundings on the water! One of our friends in Minnesota was fishing recently when a jet ski rammed into his boat catapulting the young rider into the water, and forcing the fisherman to jump into the lake. Thankfully, neither person was injured, and both jet ski and boat sustained minimal damage.A far better outcome than what could have happened.

Turns out the jet skier was riding directly into the sun, and didn’t see the boat until it was too late.
The jet skier lets off the throttle and then tries to steer, which is a big no-no. Jet skis don’t turn without throttle.
Thankfully, no one was hurt, and minimal damage was done to the boat.
