We are delighted you have found your way to the best Jet Boaters Forum on the internet! Please consider Signing Up so that you can enjoy all the features and offers on the forum. We have members with boats from all the major manufacturers including Yamaha, Seadoo, Scarab and Chaparral. We don't email you SPAM, and the site is totally non-commercial. So what's to lose? IT IS FREE!
Membership allows you to ask questions (no matter how mundane), meet up with other jet boaters, see full images (not just thumbnails), browse the member map and qualifies you for members only discounts offered by vendors who run specials for our members only! (It also gets rid of this banner!)
Agreed....it would be hard to locate someone based off the anchor mark. What I like it for is to see who's around in my area and if I might have seen them on a local lake, or when I go somewhere new on business, I will sometimes ping members in the area.@Julian , I know I am as security conscious as they come. Im sure you would agree, this is not a risk of your security or privacy for members. It just puts another boater generically on the map so you can identify with others and they can identify with your boat too. They can't track you by adding a pin on the map. Knowing others are in your area can be extremely helpful and who knows, you may make some lifetime friends! I know I have!
If anyone had any concerns about this at all, it would be easy enough to enter a city near your actual city/village/town/etc of residence. This way others in your region could still identify you as possibly interested in regional jetboating activities, without publishing any unnecessary potentially identifying info about yourself.Agreed....it would be hard to locate someone based off the anchor mark.

Some of you may have noticed that the member map throws an error, has a "for development purposes only" water mark and is dark. We are aware of this and are investigating our options. Seems Google has decided to try to make this map api a money maker, and if we want to eliminate the error and make it look nice again, we'll have to pay. So we are looking at our options.
There may be a Xenforo 2.0 map we could use....but we'll need to update to 2.0 first.
The "OK" is unrelated to the question. The question is just there to take us to their website where they explain their new process for making money!
