It has never bothered me to get pulled over except when I know that something on my boat is not ok

Melbourne PD was begging me to put the race boat in this weekend, he even came by the house on the way to his patrol boat. I didnt want to go play due to letting families enjoy the weekend and boating, I like to play when there is no one out there(safety reasons obviously) but I guess it looks like I should have put in, in order to keep them occupied

STILL WAINTING ON ONE OF THE MOTORS TO BE PUT BACK IN - SO I GRABBED 2 DEMO SKI'S FROM THE SHOP, GOT TO THE SANDBAR ONLY TO BE GREETED BY 5 WILDLIFE BOATS(THEY STOPPED EVERY BOAT COMMING OR GOING), GOT 2 TICKETS FOR NO REG. I TRIED TO EXPLAIN THAT I WAS A DEALER AND THAT THEY HADN'T SENT OUR NEW CARDS.
WHILE ON THE SANDBAR 2 FIGHTS BROKE OUT, AND 1 GIRL MIXED PILLS WITH BEER AND HAS BE RUSHED TO AN AMBULANCE(2 MANY IRRESPONSIBLE YOUNG PEOPLE KILLING OUR RIVER).
TO TOP ALL OF THAT OFF WE WENT THROUGH ANOTHER BOAT BLOCK ON THE WAY TO THE BACK, BUT NO DOUBLE JEPORDY.
GOT FED UP AND PUT UP ONLY TO GO THROUGH A ROAD BLOCK ON THE WAY HOME TO GET ANOTHER TICKET FOR AN EXPIRED INSPECTION STICKER.
THIS HOLIDAY BLEW!!!!!

I have been pulled over three times in the same day, on the third I told the officer I had already been checked twice and call his buddies to check it out, he refused and detained me for 20-30 min like the others. When he was done he asked why I was mad i said you all have taken up 90min of my day off, how about I come take 90min from your family on your day off, and see how happy you are!!!

Some of the water cops are OK, most just want to Phuk with someone.

No real problems here Just went to a lake around our house took the pontoon. The Dnr boat was parked so we just putted around and had fun. It probally helped that it was later in the day. It was a great time Took my son for his first boat ride, he loved it.
