“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S., I want it straight up. I figure you do also.”- BIll Turley

Nothing is more important than your credibility with the judge. You must always tell the truth. Every case had good or bad facts. You need to be up front and honest with your lawyer about everything. Always tell the truth. Always, no matter what it is you might be worried about.

If a judge thinks you are not being honest, you will have your case dismissed. I have witnessed it many times in court due to one white lie.  You must always be honest and truthful about your injury.

Rules of the Waterways

Unlike the roadways, our waterways don't have yellow stripes and signal lights directing traffic. Boaters must depend on each other to know and observe the "rules of the road" on the water even though markings are rarely available to provide guidance. Knowing and following the rules will prevent accidents - and keep tempers in check - so everyone can have a good time.


Inland Rules of the Road

Navigation Rules

The inland navigational rules, commonly called the "Rules of the Road," govern the operation of boats and specify light and sound signals on inland waters in order to prevent collisions.

Existing law requires that a complete copy of the new inland navigational rules must be kept for reference on board all boats of 39 feet 4 inches (12 meters) or more in length operating on inland waters. A copy of the Navigation Rules International - Inland booklet, which is published by the Coast Guard, may be ordered from: USCG Navigation Center Navcen 7310, 7323 Telegraph RD. Alexandria, VA 20598.
