OK, but I am sure that parking the Jet Ski on JC and Brooklyn is not free. Not sure why the article does not mention these charges...

I don't know why the NJ ferries don't stop in Brooklyn. It would be so great!

I'm sure he's violating some regulation and will lose his Jet Ski soon.

That assumes that you live next to a place where you can park a Jet Ski in Jersey City (wherever such a place might be) and you work next to the place where you can park a Jet Ski in Brooklyn. And then take a shower and change on both side of the trip. That's an extra who knows how many minutes.

Oh and yea as they mentioned in the article, have fun doing it in January...

That's assuming one knows how to operate a jet ski.

It's easy, however, they're not very maneuverable. If you're off in estimating closing distance, you might get creamed by a ship.

Would you risk your life? If the winds are high or a big storm you could flip over. You can easily die of hyperthermia in winter. Shame on our state for not promoting for more ferry service.

I've flipped off a jet ski before but I was horsing around

I could see the wakes from larger watercraft being an issue though
