I will leave the judgement to those without sin regarding the booze, most of us have had a few too many out there
You were probably listening to that rock and roll music as well
lol. No music, and certainly no shame. Now let me go grab a shot and get out to the boat.

Well, you must be a good man. Upon extremely rare occasions, over many years, I ran into a few "difficulties" without ever drinking on the boat.

Drunk underway and stupid enough to brag about it. We need fewer of your type on our highways and waterways.
bljones and Dog Ship like this.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

My previous post in this thread not withstanding, I like the cut of your jib sir.

So where in the Great South are you?
I'm at Corey Beach in Blue Point....

I sail out of Babylon village just east of the village pool. White hull cream decks marked as m25 #160 but technically an m24. I am shooting east more and.more nice out there and have a niece out near bellport.

Ok, here is another similar scenario;
I was all boozed up driving home last night and hit an obstacle in the middle of the road. I gunned my car in drive but it wouldn't go anywhere so I put it in reverse, gunned it, got it unstuck and managed to drive the rest of the way home without hitting anything.
Obviously blutoyz, your life has not been effected by a drunk driver.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.

You are correct, but I don't recall the OP driving down the street. My post was tongue in cheek for calling the OP stupid...Sorry you didn't get it
