Marine police step up efforts to catch drunk boaters

image
This weekend, June 26-28, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) will team up with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Virginia Marine Resource Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard to patrol state waters, looking for those boating under the influence, a charge as serious as driving under the influence.

The nationwide effort, taking place Friday through Sunday, is called “Operation Dry Water.”

In Virginia, some 130 officers will patrol waterways, looking for tipsy tillers and sloshed sailors.
