I would like to give Kudos to the local marine Patrols here in Palm Beach County as well. I have been boating for 18 years in this area 10 of wich have been in loud boats. I have never been pulled over in all my years. I have chatted a # of times with officers and they just ask questions about my boat. I used to race Jersey skiffs and had one with no registration or FL #,s and I asked a sherrif where I could test. He said come out to the Loxahatchee river after 5 pm on Tues and he would be there to keep on eye on me while I tested. Mind you, the speed limit in the river is 25mph. I feel for you guys who get harrassed out there but the are still some good spots to boat left out there.
Nowadays if I test offshore in equipment, they just hang around the inlet and watch and give me a friendly wave.
