We just returned from Sitka on Monday. We were doing some boarding training with the State Troopers, State Park Rangers and Sitka PD using our PWC's. They're put up for the winter now, but we operated them in some pretty chilly temperatures; water was 47.3F and air was below 30F in the mornings. We had some pretty strange looks from the locals (not surprising, given the time of year!) and it got me thinking about boaters attitudes towards PWC's. I know there's been issues in the past, notably in Katchemak Bay, Kenai Fiords and some Mat-Su valley lakes. What does everyone think? Should PWC's be treated like any other boat and dangerous behavior policed better or is the solution just to ban the boats? I know this is a controversial subject, but this is a good forum to air your views! I'm listening.
