I was anchored in Surprise Cove for the afternoon/night on Saturday, and there was some guy racing around the cove on a Jet Ski. It was from a ~70-ft. yacht that was anchored there. I waved the guy over and he said that he was from "the boat", the Jet Ski hadn't been used in 2 years, and the owner had asked him to take it out and see how it runs. I asked him to at least go at idle speed in the cove until he went outside. He seemed ok with that, but then idled a few hundered feet from me before resuming his racing around.
I figured that maybe the yacht was from the Lower 48 or elsewhere, but it it had AK registration and showed Anchorage as the port (on the transom). I suppose PWCs have a "right" to go wherever other boats go, but quiet coves in PWS are not the place for them as far as I'm concerned.
What do you think?
