I just reread your post again...
Look, contact your police. You seem a little befuddled here. Its a cut and dry matter. The kid does not belong on the lake again in any motorvehicle - this is a community risk. Plus you have damages and repair costs, both to the kayak and your young daughter.
Dont just air your feelings here --- reread my previous post and follow through.
Man Id never take a hit like that without returning some serious fire - not to say Im advocating shooting at his jetski.
Get a lawyer. Period. And whatever you do, dont procrastinate nor take any verbal or even written promises of payment - no matter how cordial and cairing they might sound - this is a legal matter. Fuzzy apologies and well meant promises have no place here.
Its a motorvehicle accident.
Im taking it that the kid didnt hit and run. Cool. He still needs some growing up before he starts up a motor again - and blames mothernature for a near manslaughter. Do the whole neighborhood a favor ok?
