Here Is some imformation on your question..hope this helps..
One-third of all boating fatalities are alcohol related. It is illegal to operate a boat, or to permit others to do so, while under the influence of alcohol, narcotics, or barbiturates. Penalties are severe and could include fines up to $5000, imprisonment of up to one year, non-paid public service work, and mandatory substance abuse counseling. If an operator under the influence kills or seriously injures another person the penalty can be up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5000
