Humm, lets have a few drinks while test driving a boat I do not own! WTF!

Gee, wonder why boaters get such a bad rap. Not to mention boating service typically SUCKS. This is just a fine example WHY!
Sorry, but if you read into this what it is great, but when I pay for something, the last thing I should be concerned about is some drunk testing it.
Sounds to me that someones panties are in a bunch!!! Must of just got some good service himself!!! Lighten up I'm sure they were test rides not test drives as stated...

And I am not doubting that one bit.

What I do doubt is the fact of testing ones boat while consuming alcohol
either as a passenger or the driver.

In quoting me you neglected to include, "how about backing it down a notch" and "you made a point and it was addressed", at least you could have included the whole quote and not just the words you wanted. When read in it's entirety it has somewhat of a different context than what you chose to post.

Reading other responses to your original post, apparently others read it the same way I did. I just saw you going down a path that did not need to be traveled, that's all.

No you're assuming they were loaded and intoxicated.... Do you really think they were going across the water at 90 with open beers? on a 2 to 400K boat?... or could they have ran the boat and had beer afterward? You are trying to start something.... get a clue retard.

Selective quoting .....

No one on this board consumes alcohol if they are a passenger on any boat .... You're right... JC should be crucified for enjoying a boat ride in the hot summer sun and having a beer if he got thirsty....
