Connecticut passed a law requiring a boating licence.Not sure if it is still the same but if you are new at boating and buy your first boat you have a year to get your licence.

NY now requires the Coast Guard boaters safety course to operate PWCs. I assume this is due to the large number of accidents with them. The Coast Guard was nice enough to replace our old diploma size certificates for nice wallet size we keep right on board. We believe that anyone operating any boat should take the course. It's not hard and might wake up some people to basic boating rules and safety.

Down here in the Keys we bring a 14' Zodiac with a 30HP Evinrude. Small enough to get in the basement storage but big enough to almost be noticed. A real boat would be great but one can only drag so much stuff. The air horn is a good idea. No Wally World here but I bet Kmart has one.

One question I have, not so much on the ocean but at home on our lake. Why is there a 15' tall buoy with lights to tell you that you are in the channel and deep enough water but only a 3' tall pin buoy to tell you that you are about to run aground?

In Texas, in accordance with the law, you MUST do the following to get your boat licensed,

1. Take a safety course
2. Pay the state a lot of money
3. Have an IQ of over 25
4. No U.S. Navy personnell permitted to operate boats in Texas waters

1. and 4. are enforced.
3. pretain to the U.S.Army
2. Is for Marines only, cause they work and make a living.

However, I have just about giving up my daily reading of the Leatherneck.com forums. They have many jokes there, many lies, but darned if Seajay's dont top em all.

Folks, I want everyone to under stand that this is a ''back handed compliment from a Marine to a Sailor''. Mick the Marine is actually stating a compliment, in Marine talk, to myself, a Sailor, indicating that I myself, A Sailor, am a bigger lier than all the Marines that post on Leatherneck.com. This is a real compliment and I shall cherish these words until I go to the bathroom later today. I thank Mick the Marine for the compliment and when I find enough ''small words'' to make a sentence he and Wayne the Marine can understand, I shall return the compliment in some ''like fashion'' that they can understand.

Lets all thank our veterans for their service to this nation.

Seajay
For me and maybe others that went to night school could you turn the lights down so we can read better?Small words are a good idea too.

Seajay, when you go to the bathroom later today, pat yourself on the head a few times.

It works for Catchup!

Mick, thanks for being there. I like the reprieve that you have offered me. That pile of "crap" with a marshmallow on top just doesn't get it.

My Porta-a-boat ( that has never seen water) was registered (licensed) without having to show any proof of "seamanship." I guess they know that Marines know about all that stuff. (I spent two years as a Marine Communicator on a big banana boat, AGC-11) Seajay is probably only half as knowledgeable with 4 years on the Norton.

Heheheheheheeee...we have also found out that horn is great for scaring away racoons! Seajay is absolutely right when he said that boat would have hit us head on if he hadn't moved. Things do happen and most of us have made a mistake while driving our car, so "coping" an attitude with the man wouldn't have helped either one of us. Dang, I'm glad we didn't go for an unexpected swim......that's your department, Seajay!! And like so many other things, you are VERY good at it!!
