Re: Am I an 'operator' at anchor?
huh. so CA boating law states an "operator means the person on board who is steering the vessel while underway" (same as operate) and "underway means all times except when the motorboat, sailboat, or vessel is anchored, moored or aground."
However, I imagine they can do whatever they want, as "Use means operate, navigate or employ" and they don't say what 'employ' means. So I imagine even if not operating it I am 'employing' it so am 'using' it so am operating it....BLAH BLAH BLAH
When did our rules get so convoluted that they are barely decipherable (if at all) and we are just towing the line spending tons of dough to have them turn out more drivel?
