Yet another stupid grab for cash by the Brumby vigilantes. The law is in Victoria is that you don't have to wear a life jacket if your boat is over 5m in length except if you are the only person in the boat. So here is what's going on. A few people go out in a +5m boat fishing and return to the ramp. Naturally all get out of the boat except the driver when it comes time to manouver the boat onto the trailer...this of course leaves the driver alone in the boat without a life jacket. Even though the boat was tied to a pontoon/semi floating on the sand as soon as he moves it to retrieve he will still be fined. And people are being booked even when they are lauching their boats for not wearing life jackets. This has been happening at ramps on the peninsula over the last few weeks and it will prob get worse over the summer.
