"I don't think we have made stupidity illegal here yet. "
Not per se, but most if not all states provide for 48-hour psych evals, and protective custody in one form or another. And the USCG can and will terminate voyages and seize vessels as "manifestly unsafe".
While we allow drunk drivers to continue drinking and driving with literally 40 suspensions on their license, I suspect that after ten rescues, someone would find a way to restrain the fellow. You'd have to delve into the circumstances and specifics to look at that.
