Best to be in compliance. The Constitution is suspended once you board your boat and the CG or port police can stop you and board you anytime.

We were boarded once by the port police and they never gave us a reason, but they did "ask" to see all the safety equipment that we had and inspected our registration. They were not polite and had a very aggressive posture. For what reason, I don't know. We are grandparents that had taken two children out that both had life jackets on. We were in compliance on everything they checked and they issued no warnings.

I don't judge them all by the bad apples that stopped us, but there are those that are "hot dogs". A few of those rammed into a pleasure boat at full throttle last year, killing a child on the pleasure boat. I think they were court martialed for it.
