Just a reminder on DUI(Dinghying-Under-the-Influence)
I know most(if not all) of you wouldn't operate the big boat under the influence, but it's also something to keep in mind when dinghying to shore and back for a night out. I just read a letter in the latest Lats & Atts from a guy who says he's in the middle of an 8 month jail sentence for BUI, dinghying back to his boat anchored in Boot Key Harbor(Marathon), and I've heard of other cases of people getting busted for BUI in dinghys, particularly in Florida. Just something to remember if you go to shore for a few drinks, 'cause going to jail(especially for a significant period of time) could put a real crimp in a cruising plan!
