OK, so we all want to go fast. Secretly even the true trawler guys.
So at $1.84/gal maybe trawlers will disappear. Check out Osprey Marina in S.C.

Jet ski "annoying the crap out of you when they buzz the boat in a anchorage"
The simple solution to buzzing jet sjis is to cut floating polly pro line into 2 or 3 ft lengths.
Unravel the line into single strands and scatter it around your boat.
When sucked in it will either stop the motor , or cut the seal enough to make the jet pump leak.
The sound of silence is a delight!
Don't get caught!
This is Plan B.
Plan A is to simply mount our 12G starting cannon and give a "salute" as they approach.
The black powder charge is super loud and gives even brain dead riders a hint they are not wanted nearby.

For those that want to design their own fast boat , this site may help.

Very true. I bought two jet skis (actually wave runners) about 8 years ago, and they have a grand total of 20 hours (each).
