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.
