This idea of breath test for recreation boaters is just another example of legislation going mad!!! It is a solution looking for a problem.I totally agree that commercial shipping/boaters even competition recreational boating should be "dry", but ordinary recreational weekend boating should only be breath tested in the case of an accident. If the cause of the accident is alchohol related then the person concerned should be in serious trouble. However, I am still waiting to hear about the first case where having a drink on board has caused a serious mishap. All the boating fraternity that I have mixed with over the last few years have are very responsible people, but still enjoy the odd tipple.
