In the early eighties when I got started, my friends with boats always drank their azzes off. It seemed like the thing to do. I did it too. As I got out of my twenties, and into my thirties, I chilled out quite a bit. The last few years, I am very rarely with beer in hand while boating. Lately, (maybe partially because of OSO) I have been very good.

It seems that Thunder on the River attracted some extra enforcement. We had Ohio DNR, Toledo Police Harbor Patrol, US Coast Guard, and Sheriff's Marine Patrol out, and the best part is that many were carrying ATF agents on board for the weekend.

Sunday afternoon I was stopped and boarded for the first time. I have been inspected at docks, etc. I have been "talked to" in no wakes downtown and other slow speed situations, but never intercepted while up on plane. It was kind of scary. It's so strange when a boat starts running an intercept on you.
I'm glad that I was sober. I can't imagine what would have been going through my mind if i had been drinking, even a little.
These guys weren't screwing around, and there's more enforcement in western Lake Erie than ever. I was completely legal and legit, but it was still an unpleasant experience.

I get out on the water to avoid hassles. I think that even though I was on my way in a few minutes (shaken) the experience has made me fear getting popped with a beer, even if I am not actually drunk. I think that I have evolved into a totally sober skipper. I'm quitting while I'm ahead.

At the dock is another story.

If I'm going out to run fast, or play water. If I'm just cruising or anchored a beer or two. Now that I've got the gas powered blender though....
