Hello Tom,
Tahoe is all about recreation and jet skis are a part of the fun for those that use them. Jet skis are allowed on the lake and you are correct, its the older 2 stroke engines that are banned. This also applies to boat engines. Check out the link below to see which models are approved for use.

It it also important to be aware of the issue of invasive species and protecting the lake from the asian clam and the quagga mussel. Inspections are required of all motorized craft entering the lake to protect the lake and the multi million dollar recreational economy of the Lake Tahoe.

From the TRPA website:
Today, Lake Tahoe and other western lakes face a new threat from the quagga mussel and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and its partner agencies are taking action. Quagga mussels (Dreissena bugensis) are a small freshwater shellfish with a triangular, rounded shell. A close relative of the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha), they can attach themselves to boats and boat trailers and travel for days out of the water. Once introduced to a new body of water with the right conditions, they can reproduce with astonishing efficiency. TRPA has partnered with other agencies to take action before mussels and other species can invade Lake Tahoe.

RE the buoys. No, you cannot legally put a buoy on Lake Tahoe without a permit from the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and, in California, another one from State Lands Commission. There is a stringent application procedure, also involving obtaining a Best Management Practices certificate if you don't have one. The intial criteria is to have litoral rights to the lake, with over 50' on the water entitling 2 buoys (assuming not in fish habitat and/or other concerns) or 1 buoy if you own 50' or less on the lake. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. ... more
