They were a pain in the arse on Lake Erie. Used to keep pulling us over for staff training.

They do a good job of enforcing the rules of the water though. Issuing speeding tickets checking if carrying life jackets, fire extinguishers, intoxicated skipper etc. Once pulled me over for a nav light being out and we're very polite and helpful.
