Thanks Tictac! I was pretty sure Donn was drinking but it's been a long time since I saw that episode.
Here's the rub - aircraft pilots aren't allowed to have a beer or two while taxing down the runway, landing or cruising at 30,000 feet on autopilot. Heck, they can't even have a drink up to 8 hours before they assume control of an aircraft. (I could be wrong, it's an FAA regulation if anyone wants to check the exact time)
Why should people operating watercraft be alllowed to drink? I would not even get into a boat if the operator was drinking. Same with a car. Terrible example to set for the young people, too. Shame on the Gunvalson's. They clearly know better.
