    SeaTow Help Needed ASAP-

    Does anyone have any connections with SeaTow? I was
    stopped by Ft. Lauderdale cops and had my Kawasaki taken
    from me after I was taken in for a BUI. SeaTow has the
    Ultra and want over $1000 for a 3 hour tow to their docks.

    I'm looking for a way to knock this bill down, and will take a shot
    at good or bad publicity for them on this forum and others.

    This is a really bad story on running JetSki's in this area. I'll
    write it up after I get my Ski back later today.

    You'd get better exposure in the Off-topic area. Not too many folks like coming into this particular forum.

    Hey tomgtv,
    What's a BUI? As far as the Seatow issue, will they let you use a friends card to release your ski?

    Its is a Boating Under the Influence (same as a DUI on land), you know if you get convicted here in Tennessee, on top of all the fines and other things, you also get kicked off the water for a year.Water and alcohol and operating a motorized vehcile do not not mix.

    Boating Under the Influence

    BUI is like a DUI in this state. Big difference it dosn't
    go on your drivers licensee.

    The slight detail is that I spent 25 hours locked up in
    the Broward County Jail for drinking some wine and attempting
    to run my Jetski 2miles back to my lauch ramp. I was stopped
    by Police, then Coast Guard, then Fl Fish and Game........a
    trifecta as one of my cellmates said.

    I'll write it up with pix.

    SeaTow wouldn't let me use anyone elses card.....I would just
    like them to to the right thing and reduce this bill somewhat.
    I already had enough problems without adding this on. I'm on
    my way there.......I'll let everyone know how good or bad SeaTow
    is in this situation.

    Couldn't someone else drive your Jetski back to the dock for you? Seems like BS on the cops part to me.

    In Virginia I think it does go on your driving record.
