Police cut naked boat ride short

BRACEBRIDGE, ont. - It was a breezy, but short ride for a naked couple when Muskoka police made their first arrest under new Ontario legislation that takes aim at impaired boaters.

A 34-year-old woman and her 53-year-old male passenger, who had allegedly consumed a few drinks while boating on Lake Rosseau, were both naked when they were spotted by two Ontario Provincial Police officers on marine patrol Monday afternoon.

The new law causes an automatic one-year driver's licence suspension for anyone convicted of drinking and boating.

"Trying to avoid police, the woman operating the boat accelerated northbound," Const. Ted Smith of the Bracebridge OPP detachment said yesterday.

The police boat was in hot pursuit of the naked couple in the ski boat when the male passenger cut the throttle.

The woman hurriedly pulled on her bikini and the man his pants while police waited to board the boat, said Smith.

Police found open liquor but no sign of life jackets.

The woman allegedly showed such obvious signs of impairment as loss of balance.

"She was belligerent and attempted to resist the officer upon her arrest," said Smith.

Police towed the 5-metre Century ski boat back to shore and the woman was taken to the detachment for breath tests.

Charged with impaired operation of a vessel and failing to have the required life jackets on board is Unita MacNaughton, 34, of Bracebridge.

Her driver's licence was immediately suspended for 90 days and, under the new legislation passed last Thursday, she will automatically lose her driver's licence for one year if convicted of drunken boat operation.

Police didn't lay charges of public nakedness though there are a lot of cottages in the area. "It's not as if they were somewhere like a park or family beach and there wasn't a lot of boat traffic on the lake at the time," Smith said.

Does this anti-drinking and boating rule apply to those who have decided to rent those big flashy houseboats for the summer? If so that would suck!

I would imagine it would still be ok to park it and get slammerd

Since when does nakedness constitute 'probable cause'.

Probably not.

This law is fucking retarded. Driving a boat and driving a car are two completely different things. You don't need a drivers licence to drive a boat.

Drunk powerboater, like the guy who killed the some of the person that pushed for this law, and hungover fisherman is not the same thing.

You can drink on a houseboat or any other boat that has a head as long as it's moored.. you can't drink while driving. The definition of mooring is also a little fuzzy from what I remember.. i.e dropping an anchor in the middle of lake isn't considered being tied up etc.

its not at all analagous, but its the same kind of logic that says parking tickets and photo-based moving violations go to the owner of the car rather than the actual person commiting the offense.

expediency > ... truth? justice? effectiveness? (maybe all of the above?)
