Still make sure that "in port" is a US port Canada and Mexico might just want to keep the boat as part of the fines..

flicker,

while in port who cares? but in alaska, i would venture to say most even some old salts,
again i would say alcohol is by far the worst of the poisons mentioned,, there are lots of way to alter your perspective.

Realitycaptain,

I with all due respect, of all my friends, past and present, who smoke hemp, not one of them would have hit that breakwater. Then aagin, none of them would have been navigating their own boat, either.

What''s more, not one of them would have gotten up to the point of navigating a sailboat in the ocean because they enjoyed sitting on the sofa more than at the helm.

Nonetheless, I am aquainted with many avid sailors who undoubtedly smoke, but I don''t know if they smoke underway or not.

Since you''ve surmised that 90% of old salts drink alcohol in port, let me ask you how many young salts do you think smoke pot in port. Just curious.

Hi Jim
Good to see you reply to this discussion.

THE MAIN POINT IS KEEP YOUR BOAT. DON''T DRINK, SMOKE, OR DO ANYTHING TO JEPORDIZE SAILING. However, the great state of alaska has overturned a popular vote back in 91 that that made pot illegal. The state constitution says the right to privacy supercedes the laws against smoking in the privacy of your own home. Not your boat, but your home. Its nobodys business buy your own. And while were on the subject a couple of weeks ago, there was an accident where a 36ft catamaran hit the breakwater at Auke Bay at approximately 22kts the captain was drunk lost his boat, injured two deck hands and I''m sure will go thru hell for the next few years.

Also, I work with people who have been incarcerated most of those have alcohol related crimes/DUI''s. Probably wouldn''t be in the same situation if they just smoked

We were talking about the foolishness of having drugs onboard that could spell the end of your boat ownership...

are we talking about pot or lsd. there is a big difference between "drugs" and a natural substance that you grow dry smoke. then there''s cocaine, meth, and all the chemical pharmaceutical drugs that doctors continually push on unsuspecting patients

as for hemp being illegal, think of this when marijuana was made illegal there was 42 thousand feet of rope (ok LINE) on a battle ship were talking about the 30''s and 40''s now and about that time nylon and synthetic rope became available. Hemp was made illegal because of chemical companies not for the health reason most people think. anyway howbout at anchor. when probably 90% of you old salts hit the bottle. nuf said

My nephew was detained by border police for over 2 hours while trying to cross from Canada to Alaska. This was in a van on a highway. He and his pals don''t even drink, much less smoke dope or do drugs. Everything from their shampoo, detergent, food, clothing etc was opened and inspected. Border security even went through the engine of the car, and looked in the gas tank for contraband. By the way, 2 of the 3 guys were preachers kids, really straight ( maybe too straight). So don''t think you can outwit the guys and gals on the borders, and I definitely wouldn''t want to press my luck in some faraway land, or even in the US at this time...
