There are many similarities to driving a boat and driving a car. Unfortunately, having a center line is not one of them. Boating can be a ‘free-for-all’ and an ‘every boat for itself’ situation. Many accidents could be prevented by using common sense; most could be prevented by not drinking and driving a boat! Just like driving a car, drinking or using drugs while operating a boat or personal watercraft is illegal. And, when alcohol is included in boating, just like a car, there should be a designated driver.
