there are more than one kinda boater and more than one kinda boating.
moored, anchored, docked--is a way of life.
drinking and sleeping on a temporarily stationary boat is a way of life for some--i have watched as they thin out their ranks. no problem-- they donot call for unnecessary search and rescues, they dont yell for help unless they are slightly sober, and attrition should be a darwin award factor.
there ARE folks who actually RESIDE on board their boats--- when these folks ar eanchored, is home. so ye can make them not have a sundowner or a beer?? LOL
yeah right.
then there is the russel purDUCK method of boating-- wear a star and abuse priviledge............

just add my words to doj and boatman's also..LOL--i agree with them ......doj forgot one -- stumbling under the sun/moon.....and involuntary swimming-- they FLOAT great!!!!!(after a couplafew days)

I really do agree with you.
Problem is, most people who have a drinking problem/issue really think that they can handle it when truth is they can't. They often do damage and cause injury to themselves and others who really want nothing to do with them!
If you have never gone to a party and not drank, try it. It is as entertaining as it is enlightening. As the night progresses and the liquor flows just watch as perfectly rational people become truely ridiculous and make fools of themselves. Then they get into their cars and play highway roulette.

I'm with MarkJ. I see nothing wrong with a beer or two while underway in benign conditions. Simply put, sailing a cruising boat in a moderate afternoon breeze doesn't require the same skills as flying an aircraft.

I don't need to drink while sailing, but it sure makes the beer taste better!

I spent six years behind the bar in a hotel I owned and that has left me with a healthy respect for the dangerous drug alcohol.
Infrequently and in moderate doses it is fun, but never as a routine!
Having said that, a cockpit gathering of fellow yachties around a few bottles of wine is one of the pleasures of life.
Regards, Richard.

LOL..... Liam... I don't need to not drink to watch that happen....
Most folks I know have a very low tolerance... most women are tipsy after 2-3 glasses of wine or a couple of Euro G&T's.... x 2 for the guy's....
I'm a people watcher and picker upper and then heaver back to their boatser.... but there's always that one guy left that try's to see me under the table...
some folks never learn.. no I'm not bragging its just my metabolism

On the moon shouting note, 2.2 BAC is high enough to make you pass out while walking and hit the ground like a sleeping person.

[QUOTE=MarkJ;321034]I am Australian: I drink therefore I am.

Of course I drink on the water. We are always on it!

Yes I drink while we are sailing. Every second night I get the 7pm till Midnight watch off so I have a few drinkies.

Nicolle is on the registration papers as Master. So am I.

If I am drinking she is skipper

Alcohol is a great release and if it was all that bad JC wouldn't have turned water to wine.


MARK,

You sure went through great deal to explain to this bunch of Puritans something that is none of their business.Sailors (with sails) going less than ten knots shouldn't bother wasting their breath, or time, jawboning with the "righteously" self absorbed.

I say,Go ahead, have your grog, throw in a reef if needed, and MIND the BOAT. If you are derelict, reckless or break my vessel while on watch, you will wish you had never been born. (Can you say "keelhaul?")

Seriously though. There's absolutely no comparison between driving a car a sailing a boat. Have a few beers underway don't overdo it , let's not descend into political correctness. That's all folks
