Firing warning shots legal or not?

The "gun" the schooner captain fired in a direction AWAY from the ******* on the jet ski was actually a replica flintlock type pistol. This occurred in Pulpit Harbor, Vinalhaven. I believe a legal, open season on jet skis should be allowed, utilizing, say, #7 steel shot for environmental concerns. We don''t want to kill them, just spank ''em some. The #7 would make it most sporting, particularly if I could use my 10 Gauge Winchester 6-shot lever with 32" barrel. Talk about reaching out and touching someone.....
