keep up the fear....helping keep the traffic off the water
Anyone ever been to Columbus Day regatta
? You can't find a sober person on 90% of the anchored boats. Law enforcement is everywhere, you pull your anchor and you will be stopped.
Go to any sand bar in Florida
and anchored boats everywhere with much drinking. Never have I even heard of in instance of someone being harassed until you start your engine
and pull your anchor. Then you are fair game
and should be.
Living near Clearwater Beach Florida
, we would get boarded every year and attempted boarding more often than that by coast guard. Why so often 10 years ago we had one of the only Catamarans around. They wanted to see the boat, never bothered us until we pulled anchor.
I feel perfectly comfortable in Florida having drinks at anchor, and am sure there are times I would be over leagal limits.
