Secure your “wrecking balls” – jet skis became destructive

Dear Editor, This is addressed to Sylvan Lake jet ski owners.

Dear Editor,

This is addressed to Sylvan Lake jet ski owners.

Question: What’s the difference between a drifting jet ski and a wrecking ball?

Answer: Wrecking balls sink!

During today’s (Wednesday, July 4) high winds and huge waves, I counted not one but five Sea-Doo’s floating down the lake, including a beautiful red one that destroyed my neighbour’s new dock, my dock and I am sure a few others down the shore.

There was nothing we could do to pull them ashore as there no longer is “a shore”, nor is there anything to tie them to as they knock everything down in their path.

Please do us all a favour and secure your “wrecking balls” so those of us downwind may both use and enjoy our equipment too!

Pat Walsh,
