As far as I know, still illegal to have an open container in a car...
Same here in NY...a skipper can have an alcoholic beverage while driving a boat without penalty. However, if the skipper causes an accident or property damage or violates the rules of the waters, AND cannot pass a field BAC test, the proverbial book is thrown at him/her. Heavily.

I have boated for 25+ years. I have taken many United States Power Squadron courses, so many that I get a sizable discount on my insurance.

Do I have a beer or two while out on the lake ? Yes.
Do I get drunk while acting as skipper ? Hell no.
I am responsible for my passengers' safety and my behavior while on the water.
I take that responsibility very seriously.

Speaking of boats, I just watched "All is Lost", a movie with Robert Redford as a sole man on a sailboat that got damaged at sea. I would never think of sailing a small boat across the ocean (by myself or not), and this movie reminds me of the reason.

There is no dialog in this movie as the sole character is by himself. One of the few words he utters is "F*ck" when he discovers that salt water has seeped into the fresh water container he manages to salvage before his boat sinks. Oh man, I would not want to put myself in such a desperate situation.

I thought that was a very good movie, but the ending left me scratching my head..

People die in auto accidents and plane crashes every year, and always will for the foreseeable future. But that doesn't stop most of us from driving or flying...

So so movie IMO.

That costs at least twice as much of course. This one is a bit over $6 mil but sure looks nice.

PlaneCheck Aircraft for Sale - New planes and price reductions

I did see another Lockheed P-38 under restoration for only $4.5 mil.

The market isn't exactly flooded with them.

Tailgate, All Is Lost’s ambiguous ending: Does Robert Redford’s character live or die? And what does it mean?
