    More Jetski Restrictions

    Hi all,

    Here in Northern California we are in dire need of help. NOAA is proposing expanding the current sanctuary which ends at Bodega Bay to extend all the way to Point Arena. This means NO PWCs are allowed. Currently they have a provision to set aside some zones where we can still ride, but opposition is building up fast and they are very vocal. Please go to this address and leave a decent comment, stating that you support the MPWC zones as proposed.

    We need to stop this here, otherwise it will continue on with lakes, rivers, etc. Marin County has already outlawed them on every single body of water. Soon they will be in your area trying to stop you from riding.
    Please leave a comment by clicking on the link below. We need as many as possible, and we only have until June 30th. Thanks!

    MODS, PLEASE MAKE THIS A STICKY. THANKS!

    Great! It's important that as many people leave a comment supporting the proposed zones.
    Thanks so much!!

    Re: More Jetski Restrictions

    Is there a map of where you can ride on the north coast?

    There are a few, not many! We cannot ride from Montery to Bodega Bay, except for a few very small areas. I'm replying from my phone now, when I get home tonight I'll post more info on that. I've gotten pulled over by the Coast Guard a few times...

    Here is a link with the only areas allowed from Monterey to Bodega Bay:

    You can also ride inside the SF Bay, I am a bit unclear on the regulations but as I understand it, you need to be at least 1,200 feet away from any SF shore and of course you cannot be anywhere in Marin County. You can ride North of Bodega Bay, but you CANNOT launch in Bodega harbor (how retarded is this??), you would have to launch further North.

    It is really bad. I went on the DMV website that deals with boating and they are closing MANY lakes to MPWCs, also. This really needs to stop. Pretty soon they'll have us confined to our backyards. They're doing this with the dirt bikes too, closing down many areas in the desert where no or little animals live and definitely no plants. Their main argument is pollution, noise and erratic riding.

    Please ride responsibly, especially in the ocean. We need to get our right to ride back.

    There will be a few public hearings before June 30, I strongly encourage as many people to go and voice their opinions. They're kind of keeping them secret, so people don't have a chance to respond. You should see what a sanctuary board member said about jet skis, it will blow your mind. I'll find a link to it and post it. This guy should resign yesterday on account of his moronic rambling...

    It is cold! I take my ski fishing there a few times a year, I have it rigged with gps, fish finder, vhf radio, cooler rack and rod holders.

    Definitely, you guys are lucky there, but there is no telling what NOAA will target next. They use the divide and conquer technique well. Please help us out and send a comment... Thanks!
