    I can't swim.

    Oh, wrong topic. The answer to the question is, YES.


    I just re-read the question, and the answer is NO.

    I do not own a boat. Therefore it is not my boat. If you are asking if I carry while on board a boat, the answer remains the same, YES.

    When I get dressed each morning I follow the same routine, socks, then panties, jeans, belt & holster, firearm du jour, then and only then, bra and shirt. If you see a topless woman in a boat, you'll know I'm not carrying.
    It hasn't happened yet.

    Having been threatened by "professional" tournament fishermen over fishing spots in the past, I am always armed with a Canon, a video recorder, a firearm and a cell phone.
    When some people are fishing for 200K they can get pretty ignorant!

    this is kind of a funny thread.

    I USE to own a 26' Aft Cabin (thank god I sold it in '03)

    This incident happened about 15' years ago

    A friend of mine owned a 36' fishing boat and he took me and 5 cops out for a day of fishing on Lake Ontario. We were about 30 miles out, there was the usual drinking and bragging going on and one particular officer was always catching the biggest fish and bragging about it, he was generally annoying his fellow officers (I was at the helm enjoying the day~~~drinking~~~unarmed)

    Mr Big mouth hooked into a nice size Salmon, he was bragging (again) how great he was. When he got the fish to the surface, about 6' from the boat, his fellow officers broke out there carry weapons and blasted the crap out of the fish. After they "unloaded" on the fish there was silence on the boat until I started laughing.

    I was laughing so hard I almost stopped breathing.

    Jmac's new rule of fishing: Never fish with intoxicated cops When these guy's "unwind" they go all out

    Yep, always there are some lakes in Texas where if you fish at night a boat will slip in close to you and make you get out of you boat into the water. They will steal your boat. On some cases they have watch you launch and know what kind of vehicle you drive. They will drive your boat back to the launch and take your trailer and vehicle also.

    I got rid of our boat, but am thinking about getting another one, but the answer to the question is it depends on what body of water I am on. If I am on one owned by a state around here, then yes. If I am on a Corp of Engineers body of water no I do not because it is illegal to do so.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Especially on the boat.

    If you think LE is slow responding to a threat on dry land, you should try throwing in a few miles of water between you and them!
