Petty? Frivolous? Those two attitudes are what is wrong with boating today. Too many people are dying on our waterways because the attitude is that a boat and operation of a boat should not be governed by laws. Even though a boat is to most a recreational vessel, it is still a vehicle and a dangerous machine.
