We are professional party people. With that comes a sense of how to, when to, and why it's time to drink, and how much. There are sections that have the sensation of spring break, but that's where the ammetuer's are hang'n out. You need to hit the neighborhood bars to see what's really going on. Last call is at 4 a.m. wich means your leaving the bar at 5, which means your putt'n, or rowing out to the anchorage at first light. At least that was before I grew up a little..... Oh, and I'm sure community's and cops are more up tight north of here, even before you get out of the Key's. It's hard to live other places once you've become Key's-afied

Wow! Those names sure bring back some old memories. Been to the Half Shell Raw Bar, The Hog Fish and I think everyone has been to Captain Tony's at least once. When I was a young kid in the employ of Uncle Sam's Navy most of those places didn't exist. I do remember, though, doing some guitar pickin' and singin' at a hotel bar on Duval Street called the Southern Cross, but that was nearly 55 years ago. I'm not sure if that place is still in existence. I'll have to check it out when I get back down there in November or December.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Drinking at anchor

In most USA legal venues you dont have to be actually driving a VEHICLE when intoxicated to be arrested for DUI.
If youre Inside or on the VEHICLE (car, truck, horse, riding lawn mower, boat, roller skates, etc., etc.), are the 'apparent driver' or logical 'potential' driver, the DUI laws in most venues will apply.
Doesnt matter if your sleeping, unconscious, in your enclosed garage, etc. etc. ... IF 'behind' the wheel or 'operating' (a boat anchored and under command is usually considered 'operating') and if you have exceeded the proper blood-alcohol level = DUI arrest.

Re: Drinking at anchor

Na, sailors have been drink'n 'em selves to sleep on the hook for thousands of years. You'd be arresting 200 people a night in Key West. Responsible, hard working people, who live aboard year round and have a couple of cocktails while they watch the sun go down. Not weekend warrior, up tight, 4 month, fair weather, flat water, W.A.F.I.'S ,but Salty, blue water, international, take all comer, sailors who can handle their grog.
