So many years ago I driving a cigarette type boat for an older gentleman who wanted to go out for a spin. We running on fumes to get to the fuel dock when the Coasties stopped us for an "safety inspection". While the the old gent was yelling at me to keep going, the 2 M-16's and the lead guy with an MP-5 convinced me to cooperate. I announced to the officer in charge that if we were not allowed to get to the fuel dock (about 600 yards away), they would have to tow us in. As he was thinking about that, the starboard motor shut down. So they did follow us to the fuel dock and conducted their inspection there. But what really amazed me, was that the old gent's boat passed with flying colors. I was sure we get tagged for something, but everything was shipshape.
