Can the operator of a boat drink ? I know you can not be under the influence but if the FWC pulls me over and I have a beer in hand can I be cited ?
(Personally, I don't understand why boating is so associated with drinking. Things can go so wrong so quick on the water, I don't know why somebody would take the chance.)
wheelin (4/11/2010)if your going to drink and boat let me know when your going i will stay at home that day
It makes me want to go boating!!!!! j/kReed i'm glad you brought this up for the guys that like to have 1 or 2beers in a days fishing trip. A lot of people most likely wanted to ask but didn't want to be labled as a drunk. Now the info is out there so good job. I will say this my sister in laws boyfriend who is 220lbs got a DUI a few months ago pulling out of a bar after drinking 1 beer. He blew a .06 off 1 beer so if you have a beer the $500 fine and not taking the test seemsto be the way to go since you would not lose your drivers licence. If they really wanted to put a dent into the drinking and boating issue they would check every boat that pulls anchor at the sand bar and leave us who like our trip back roady alone.bamagator (4/12/2010)This thread makes me thirsty.:letsdrink
