Default Personal Watercraft..

If a PWC leaving Kelleys Island. Ohio in Western Lake Erie headed east and another PWC launched in Erie, Pennsylvania headed west, how long would it be before they ran into one another?

Assuming they don’t run into a dock or other boater first?

You must factor in the BAC of each operator. High score wins!

if you come out of Seaway marina on Kelley's Island south side and the other comes out of Presque Island State park your looking at roughly 143 miles in the straightest line possible and staying in US waters.

Split that in half and that's 71.5 miles and if you assume each ski is going to run at 50mph for 1 1/2 hours then you would meet in the middle somewhere just off the shore line of Mentor Ohio

any speed less than 50mph extends the meet up but you would be close If I were doing it I would meet up at the Mentor Harbor Yacht club that is about the midway point and gives you both an in the middle point

the guy coming from Kelley's will go a little further than the one from Erie but good middle ground

LMAO oh Ya BAC would alter entire projections and if you were leaving from Put in Bay (aka Key West of Lake Erie) BAC would be a big factor lol.
