I’ll take it a step further. My boat, it isn’t just me that is dry but everyone else is too. No exceptions to alcohol on the boat, but my passengers are free to drink when they get off or go to lunch with me and drink there.
I’m descended from alcoholics so while I’m sure it’s a bit harsh, I don’t think alcohol and fun mix with anything that has a motor.
Now if I’m on someone else’s boat, they and the other passengers can drink like fish if they want to. I just won’t be comfortable with it.
The other half of my family start the light beer drinking at like 10am and drink all day while we are out on Mohave. I’ll only drink when I get back to the hotel, but I’ll still have fun on the lake.
And since I’m at it, no cigarette smoking on my boat either. Do it elsewhere. I had an unknowing chick hold her cigarette once right next to the tank vent. Miracle we are all around to tell the tale.
I have the good fortune of only ever boating alone.
