14. Fail to obey buoys and channel markers
Would you drive a car on the sidewalk or not stop at a red light? They’re there for a reason.
15. Boat without using sunscreen
A day on a boat, with no cover, floating on top of a highly reflective surface under a bright, hot, burning sun. Nice to meet you, Redman.
16. Ask to be taken in off the lake midday
When you set foot on someone’s boat in the morning, you are entering into an implicit day-long contract that states you will stay on the boat until the captain of it has called it a day, even if that time does not come until 9pm. Unless the beer’s run out.
