being safe and following the rules.

Hi All,

My wife and I were out fishing a pond Friday. There were about 5 other boats besides us fishing that morning. The Maine warden service came out and started checking everyone. He came to us first and checked our Licenses , flotation devices, etc. We had seen him on North Woods Law and had a nice conversation with him. Then he went to check the other boats. Within a few minutes he was heading back to the launch, escorting one boat, with another boat in tow. From what we overheard as they went past us, one boat didn't have PFD's, and the one being toed  had someone on it who sounded drunk. I don't think either of their days ended well.

  It got me thinking how easy it is to do everything correctly, and have a safe fun day. And how not doing so can spoil your day real fast.

Laws are in place to keep everyone safe, and if people choose to break these laws they should face the consequences. I think with what you witnessed, if it was done more often, boaters will really think twice in breaking these laws.
