    I should probably recalibrate the sensor and try it out now that I have sufficient ballast in the boat.

    Thanks! it's good enough that it's making it hard to justify getting into anything different that costs a ton more money.

    That's dumb. How about giving them an education about what a Fresh Air Exhaust does?

    there was no point in trying to explain anything to these 2 officers. their minds were made up. emailed the lawyer that got me out of my last last traffic ticket this morning. if there's an out or reduction he'll find it.

    as he leaned over the boat to give me my extinguisher back, he noticed the coozie in the drivers cupholder down low. immediately asked me to give it to him. the look on his face when I pulled the diet dr pepper can out of the coozie and handed it to him was priceless. he thought there would be a second charge for beer within reach of the driver. one of the guys on the boat saw his face and said he had never seen such a letdown
    told him I was not drinking as I was entertaining the guys that were drinking. I don't think he believed me but whatever.....

    One of the few areas where our laws are actually more lax...

    Under Oregon law, boat operators are allowed to drink alcohol and possess open containers on boats. However, boat operators cannot be under the influence — meaning their blood-alcohol level cannot be above the same .08 percent threshold for drunken driving. Also, those with a lower blood-alcohol level face arrest if they are impaired.
    In fact, I found out recently that OR law actually allows surfing w/o a life vest. I don't condone this, but occasionally I have a stubborn friend that wants to be free. This weekend he was on my boat and tossed his life vest in the boat while surfing. It's on him to accept the consequences, and I'm not going to treat him like a child. He surfed right past the sheriff shortly thereafter with obvious white upper body skin hanging out and the sheriff didn't do a thing.

    They don't publicize these gray areas in OR, but they do exist.

    In fact, I just read up that sitting on the sundeck, etc is only prohibited above 5mph in OR.

    WA will tag you for open container in the driver's cupholder though. :-/

    I always use cans of non-alcoholic beverages for drinking on the boat. Whether Vodka finds its way into the can is undetermined...

    Well, I do live in WA. But it's 15 minutes to OR and almost all my boating is done under OR law. (when there's 2 states that share a boundry with water like the Columbia river, the more lenient of the laws apply per the Oregon Boating Board). So that means I use WA's law to ride until an hour after sunset, but OR's more lenient laws on other things.
