It would be nice to see the negative financial impact alcohol has on society. Sure seems a lot of money goes to patroling for dui's and housing them in jail, not to mention the impact they have on others when they do cause accidents.

Boating regulations state that the legal limit for a boater's blood alcohol level is 0.10.
Boaters must have a better tolerance for alcohol than those who drive cars. Can this be true?

It really makes me mad about the people who joke about this issue. I was run over by a boat in high school and broke my back, dislocated my jaw, and a bunch of other physical and mental issues. I applaud anyone who fights this issue because it is one that is overlooked.

Its not that bad. Can anyone tell me the last who was hurt by a drunk boater at Chatfield this year? Or even better when was the last injury at Chatfield where a Drunk Boater was blamed?

Where is the proof that anyone was killed or hurt by someone who would have qualified for a DUI or BUI this year on the water? If there was an accident on the water that involved someone over that limit, Shouldn’t we be sure it was their fault and that someone who didn’t have anything drink would have been able to avoid the accident before we spend all of the money on extra patrols or prosecute the so called drunk boater?

Another thing to think of is 1.5 or 2 million people go to Chatfield every year.(Not all of them boat) but if you take that number state wide and compare that to the number of accidents I really don't think this is justified at all.

Weird isnt it? Could it be that both laws are unjustified?
