From narduciemarine (I'm sure I've misspelled it. But, spellcheck isn't going to catch it!)
I wanted to mention something about the Gathering and the Marine Police.
This will be the same weekend as the color cruise and the MP will be out in force, there will be a lot of traffic on the river. I wanted to give everyone bringing a working boat a heads up about this.
The MP have been taking a very serious approach to BUI this year. I live on the river in Decatur and I see them out every day pulling boats over and checking. BUI is a serious offense here with the same punishment as a DUI.
I didn't want to post this but maybe we can do that or make a flyer to hand out as the people show up.
I know Im a beer drinker and have been very careful this year when on the boat. I hope everyone has a good time but hate to see anyone get hauled off to jail.
Let me know what you think.

Bill I think you brought up a good topic on this drinking and boating under the influnce. I was wondering myself how they patrol the water in that area and I am glad you posted it here for all to see and I hope they all read it too.

to be responsible and (politically correct), I guess we should put a sign next to the keg.

I am not sure about Guntersville, but on Lake Weiss, you cannot even have it in the boat. This is a dry county and basically having it on the boat is the same as drinking and driving.
