Drink-boat legislation is actually on the statute books, in the Railways and Transportation Safety Act of 2003. Section 80 has yet to come into force because officials struggle to define a small craft, however, the RYA have opposed it as they describe it as a sledgehammer being used to crack a nut. Apparently, sensible boaters will be targeted unfairly which is B.S. as you are either over, or under the limit. :roll:
Boaters may be prosecuted under the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 if their actions on the water are seen to be endangering other vessels, structures or individuals and they are under the influence of alcohol.
