Sux, you must not know the family or anyone who has died from a poor desicion made under the influence of alcohol. If you did, you would know this is a result of activism after preventable death. It makes no sense that the rules of driving under the influence did not apply to boating. If people have to pay a hefty fine or serve some time, maybe they will think twice before getting behind the wheel of a boat after drinking. The article above says HALF of all boating fatalities have alcohol as a contributing factor. Meet the family at the link below. They were out fishing at night, stationary, when a drunk boater plowed right into them at 40-50mph.
