It is summer time in South Carolina and people often take a break from the summer heat by boating and enjoying our lakes.
South Carolina has laws against Boating Under the Influence just like driving an automobile.
The sun, the heat and alcohol all have dehydrating effects on the body. Dehydration can make the effects of alcohol more pronounced. So please be careful, but if you do get charged with Boating Under the Influence, you should immediately call Nick Lavery and discuss your legal rights.
