Boat Sober was developed to reduce the number of people on the water operating vessels under the influence of an intoxicant. Many boaters on the nation’s waterways are unfamiliar with the dangers of operating a vessel impaired and don’t know the consequences of this illegal behavior.
This simple mobile app will remind the user that drinking while operating a vessel is not worth the risk. The app includes links to marinas throughout the state as well as a look at what drinking can mean to your ability to see and judge distances through the Impairment Goggles.
The app provides a Blood Alcohol Estimator that allows the user to estimate their BAC based on their gender, body weight and how many drinks they have consumed in a specific period of time. This tool is only that….a tool. You can be arrested for a BAC less than the legal limit if you show signs of impairment. Drinking while on the water increases the chances of an accident or drowning.
