Default "Blue Sky" drink commercial

Have anyone seen the TV commercial for "blue sky" malt beverage.. No wonder some accidents involve intoxicated drivers The ad shows a huge cruiser boat on plane, then showing them all drinking this alcholic beverage and having fun, smiles, laughs, boating. This what gives the people the idea they can get away with it, if they can do it on TV anyone can do it I saw this ad last night and it bothered me, not much bothers me, but dammit that ad gives us boaters a bad name and a image that drinking is always involved when boating.. Me myself I do not drink while boating ( believe it or not) but I won't crack a beverage til the boat is on the hoist and covered, then is the time to get sloshed You see how many accidents have happened this year already with intoxicated drivers and some careless people..

ok I am done venting..

There is nothing wrong with boatpops used in moderation.
