I got into a discussion with a fellow worker regarding drinking booze on a boat. He was saying that many times he has had convsations with the Coast Guard while drinking a beer and they never said a word about it? I said I thought having an open container of alcohol on a boat was just like in a car, unless you had hired a Capt. to drive your boat you weren't supposed to drink on the water. I know some party boats sell beer but if you think about it we're hiring that Capt to drive the boat so I believe it's OK but what about a recreation vessel with a bunch of guys? If you say one guy is the desiginated driver is it OK for the rest to drink while boating?
