If you’ve been convicted of a DUI, you may wonder what about the implications on your career. Depending upon whether your DUI conviction was a felony or misdemeanor could have a profound effect.

There is little to no protection in an open-air vehicle, and even minor mishaps in controlling a boat could have catastrophic implications. A boat is as deadly a vessel as an automobile.
A person operating a recreational vessel is considered drunk with an .08 BAC level. For commercial watercraft, the BAC level drops to .04. For specialized watercraft like aquaplanes and jet skis, there is zero tolerance, which means the operator can not legally have any alcohol in his or her bloodstream.
If you have been arrested for boating under the influence, or a boating DUI, we suggest you find an experienced DUI/BUI attorney from our Chico office. Contact our office to schedule a FREE CONSULTATION.
