Jet skis, also known as personal watercraft, are now the leading cause of boatin
Sec. 1 p. 4-7
Jet skis, also known as personal watercraft, are now the leading cause of boating complaints in Maine. New Hampshire banned personal watercraft on roughly 75 percent of that state's lakes in 1992, while Vermont banned them from all ponds under 300 acres. Maine's Great Ponds Task Force was established to address threats to the state's lakes, and the subject of jet skis has dominated the group's discussions. Legislation introduced this year would have regulated personal watercraft, but the bill never made it out of the Legislature. The Sportsman's Alliance of Maine this year surveyed its membership on jet skis, and 83 percent of respondents favored banning the craft from all ponds under 200 acres and on all waters in the unorganized territories.
