Re: dnf because of county police boat?

Unfortunately around here most LEO's on the water tend to be auxiliary officers and have zero boat handling skills and limited knowledge of the COLREGs or other rules. They dont pull alongside so often that it is problematic and usually are only concerned about alcohol and life jackets. Fortunately they rarely have an attitude unless you have one.

Sounds like this guy was power tripping but the skipper probably could have hollered his intentions given how close they must have been.
