dination, and judgment. Compound this with such environmental
stressors such as glare, heat, vibration, and engine noise, one can
become quickly fatigued thus slowing your reaction time.
We must always keep in mind that a boat is an unstable platform, and since a large percentage of fatalities occur from falling
overboard. Alcohol will also decrease your coordination. Drinking
also impairs your ability should you find yourself unexpectedly
immersed in the water. Many a good swimmer has drowned
because alcohol distorted their ability to orient themselves
upon entering the water and ended up swimming down instead
of towards the surface.
Alcohol may also give you the feeling that you and your boat can
perform maneuvers beyond both your limits. The ability to process
information from various sources is also depressed by alcohol and
the person may develop
a tunnel vision perspective, thus blocking out
critical information. One's
ability to judge speed
and distance are also
impaired which also limits
one's ability to track moving objects. Alcohol also
reduces your night vision,
you lose the ability to differentiate between red
and green which makes
the intoxicated boater
an even greater hazard
after dark.
