Hello

Was wondering if its against the law to have glass, aka "beer" bottles in your boat while on the lake, bay or gulf? Not gonna be drinking and drivin, passengers only. My Dad seems to think it illegal, but some of our friends say it isn't.

Any info. appreciated.
Thank You
Eric

Take a cooler full of glass bottles, drop it from the tailgate of a truck, and see what happens, it's about like slamming a few waves in your boat.... Go figure.....

We ain't talking open containers, we are talking GLASS.... Ever been wading and cut your foot on glass, with the bacteria born problems in the water today, it wouldnt be fun....

Glass in a boat

Not a good idea. I have not allowed glass in my boat for many, many years. Not since the first one was dropped and broke.

I do not think there is any law about it though.

I think it depends on the lake or body of water. Here in San Antonio, the area lakes have a ban on glass on the water. Good idea in my opinion. We do have to make adjustments sometimes, but I don't mind one bit if it means not having my foot sliced open or running over a bottleneck...

All the rivers (Guadalupe and Comal) have the same restriction as well.

I meant to ask Reeltor if he found Shiner Bock in plastic bottles. I know it's a sacrelige but they shore taste good on the beach! Any clues?

Man my spelling sucks tonight!

Badhabit, if you make danged sure the bottles stay in the boat and end up in
the trash can back at the dock..what's the problem? I think he was asking

What IF ????

For some unforseeable, or nonpreventable reason your boat goes down, are ya gonna swim those glass bottles to shore ??? and don't think it can't happen, It did to a friend and I on Trinity Bay last summer in a 16' flatbottom, we lost everything in the boat, including a brand new 5000 watt generator.....

Yea, we made our own reef, rods, reels, tackle, generator, light bar and quite a few full Busch Lite cans..LOL, we swam with the boat for over 3 hrs in the dark to the closes shore line which was a rock levi that was full of skeeters... Sat thru a major lightining storm, we were kinda worried... But were still alive..... I will never forget that nite....
