Good plan a friend of mine tried the CG and no MC numbers for a while. He got pulled over every time going in or out the channel.

Put towels down if your that worried.

Talked to my roommate today at work about this and here is what he does on a typical boarding. (This is not what all our boarding officers practice but most do.)

If he pulls up next to your boat and you can show your registration/and or documentation and all of your safety gear quickly they will not step foot on the boat, just give you the boarding slip and leave. If you have signs of being intoxicated, or you are acting like a arrogant a$$ they will board the boat, if he decides they are going to board they don't remove their boots.

All the boating rules and laws apply to me also, I'm just a regular worker Coastie and not a boarding officer. Our Boarding Officers are Federal Law Enforcement Officers. I out rank my roommate and can tell him what to do at work, but if I'm in my personal boat and he boards me (or any other CG Boarding Officer) and I'm drunk or being an a$$ they can arrest me.
