Congratulations to the Rockport Police in getting a new 28-foot boat for a city of 10,786. Corpus Christi got a new 44-foot police boat June 17, but they have a population of 348,420. This should help us rescue us from ourselves, and be a good source of revenue at the same time.
PFDs in boat lockers are not easily accessible, and mandate a $240 fine, for example. That third beer fishing in the heat gets the “Holy of Holies,” a BWI, with at least $5,000 in court costs and fines. Watch your auto insurance drop you, too.
If drugs are involved, they may be able to seize your entire boat.
All in all, it’ll be a great day to be at sea.
