It is illegal to drink and operate a boat in all 50 states, with each state enforcing their own unique penalties for those caught boating under the influence. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, nearly half of all boating fatalities involve alcohol.

New Jersey law states that a person is considered to be operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol or drugs if he or she has a blood or breath alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or more.

The symptoms that primarily attract officers to the boat, and the procedures that follow are very similar to DUI cases.

Such symptoms include:

  • Speeding
  • Right-of-way violations
  • Equipment violations (life preservers or navigation lights)
  • Lack of current visible registration
  • Erratic driving of the watercraft
