A $32,000 grant from the state will be used by the Yolo County Sheriff's Department to purchase personal watercraft for rescue and enforcement.
By Bill Lindelof

I thought the state was broke. Where in the heck did they find the funds for that. Then $32k should be 1-2 boats.

just don't break the law and you won't have anything to worry about.

Easier said then done... if some guy is wading in waste deep off a beach with car access, there is a 100ft 5mph zone. When there are three beaches right through great riding areas, stopping, pulling in the rider, etc is a pain in the arse!

Well... It all depends upon that time of month for them also. Today might work to do something with the Popo in site and starring at the boat. Then the next day with the same popo, they pull you over.

Easier said than done IMO. And the main reason why I prefer other bodies of water at times.

I'm all for it ! They usually hang out south of I-5 and around old Sac, Keep the idiots in check hopefully.

UJ the Sutter county guy's are by far the worst to deal with ! I better find out the H2O patrol deputy's and kiss ass now !

I'm cool with the DA's maybe I can name drop if needed...lol

"The department's Marine Patrol Section had applied for the funding from the state Department of Waterways to buy Honda AquaTrax personal watercraft and an inflatable boat. An AquaTrax F-15 lists for $13,000 on Honda's web site.

The department has three patrol vessels for most enforcement activities. Personal watercraft, however, are quicker and more maneuverable vessels than patrol boats."

It sounds like they're buying PWCs to (hopefully) monitor PWC activity on the river. I'm sure they wouldn't hesitate to ticket a boat operator but I'm glad they've realized that PWC operators need some serious monitoring. Anyone who launches regularly at Garcia Bend knows what I'm talking about. Last year some A hole on a three seater took out my 11 year old while she was wakeboarding by passing within 15 feet of her.
