I honestly haven't got a clue on this one...but I am pretty sure that it's not
That's not it at all... geesh! You can't consume alcohol while under way because that is driving while under the influence. And the dock restrictions are obvious. If you have a head and a cooking device you can claim that you reside there at least part-time and as a residence you may 'park it' at the dock and stay for the night, not just some yahoo in a skiff hanging at the dock for a booze-up before heading back out on the water to try and find their way home!

poo poo platter... where the hell do you get this stuff?
