PLEASE ACCEPT MY ABSOLUTE, HUMBLE AND SINCERE APOLOGY.
I in no way mean to stereotype or lump everyone as being inconsiderate with their jet skis. I realized it as soon as I saw what/how I posted.
Devil's Lake has a LOT of tourists who rent the canoes and kayaks, swim w/o any "float" across the lake (they often are hard to see!), lots of non-motorized hazards that I am sure are faced by many.
The people I'm referring to - the scary ones - are ones I've watched from shore at another small lake, Dutch Hollow. I've seen them buzz around the fishermen, not respect the "no wake" zones, cut off canoes, etc., and even hit each other, because they just are not paying attention.
I absolutely agree that the majority of folks on the water read and respect the rules as well as other people.
Right now, I'm trying to reacquaint myself with sailing, and I am aware of who else is in the area. I'm afraid of those with "power" who have been drinking, or are reckless or purposely try to drive wild, because they are so much faster and move "into play" quicker than I can spot them.
Again, my apologies.
I'm going over to the "places to sail" forum to ask about other local lakes - please check in if you have any thoughts!
