There are some jerk Sailors and Coast Guardsmen but if you put yourself in their shoes (or boots, as it were) you're dealing with the ocean, drug runners, human smugglers, idiots risking the lives of others, not to mention no-kidding navies and pirates.
The rules are loose to make it possible for them to do their jobs. We never hassled anyone unfairly, and as a civilian I've always been treated well.
