We had some jet skiers starting to use the Upper C back in the day. As an outfitter we found it far quicker and easier to pressure the private put in/ take out folks to not allow access then to get the BLM to create or change Policy.
So why be such an ass? If it is legal through the managing agency leave them alone. Will a ski or two really ruin your whole day? If so MOVE. There's more places they can't go than they can.
This BS elitist attitude is the same that we fight from fishermen trying to limit raft/kayak access. WTF does it always have to be "my way or the highway"?
No I don't jet ski. In fact I hate them, however I respect others right to do what they want within the rules of the managing agency. In this case they aren't going to damage resources beyond reason so just let it be.
