I have a carefully designed and installed hammock type seat that hangs over my transom. It is a option installed by the manufacturer of the boat, who builds them right there in Annapolis.

I'd love to see them write me a ticket for sitting on it.

Something tells me if you would have gotten a ticket the court would have dropped the charges. I bet the guy used that as an excuse to stop you giving him a chance to see if you had alcohol in sight.

I'm glad I read the 11 pages of MD rules. Thanks to bheintz for the link.

I see the boating under the influence rule is 0.08%. However, unless I missed it there is no open container law. So I think you can drink and drive as long as you are below 0.08 Is this correct?

The VA laws are much different than the MD laws.

In your state, can you be busted for having cocktails at anchor/mooring/dock? Even when underway, who is the operator--the sober crew at the helm or the drunken captain in his bunk?

The law says "It is unlawful to operate or attempt to operate a vessel..."

So I think you would have a pretty good case that at anchor, mooring, or dock that you were not operating or attempting to operate.
