Jb, It was mid-day at PIB, and I was staying the night there so why not grab a beer. My friends boat was next to mine and I hopped on there and watched them. They were cool with it, but they did ask to see the beer like I was trying to sneak something off the boat. They started a few years back walking the dogs up and down the docks just hopeing the dog catches scent of something. Must have been the italian subs on my boat!!
I wouldn't consider it a complete weekend of boating if I didn't get pulled over at least once on the weekend. I ALWAYS get pulled over. I got pulled over 3 times in one day last year, and once the next day. They are really stringent around here, but I also always have 8-10 people aboard, and a full out party going on while idleing thru the canals or pulling up to the party spots. It's almost a sure thing if they see me, they come over and check it out. All of which is ok with me, I stay sober, and greet them with a smile, in the hope that they will leave me alone if they see I'm always in check. It hasn't happened yet though.
