My experience with the MP has been hit or miss.  Have been stopped several times over the years for one thing or another but never got a citation.  My only beef with them was when the officer took the position that because my boat was registered in Alabama I needed a boaters license.  I politely explained that I do not operate a water craft in Alabama more than 45 days per year so I do not need a license. Other than that one semi-unpleasant exchange I have found them to be professional and reasonably courteous given the boneheads they have to deal with every day.

I have also noticed the newest fad of light bars and saw one while on a night cruise in the Sandy Creek area Saturday night.  Very visible but much worse even than docking lights which are also a nuisance, not to mention illegal to use at night when running.  As for the jet skis, they were out in force last weekend.  Saw one with two people on the jet ski, both facing forward, pulling a tube with 3 kids.  Not only illegal but dangerous.  I have reduced my jet skis down to one and would like to get down to none but they are very popular with the young adults.
