OK SO I JUST STARTED THIS NEW SUMMER JOB AS A STATE POLICE OFFICER, IN THE LAKE PATROL DIV. ITS PRETTY COOL BUT MAN IT IS SO HARD TRYING TO MAKE A VESSEL STOP ON THE WATER BECOUSE THEIR IS NO SAFE WAY TO DO ONE! IT HAS BEEN BOTHERING ME BECOUSE WHEN YOU ARE ON THE STREETS YOUR CAR IS NOT ALWAYS MOVING LIKE IT IS WHEN YOU ARE IN A BOAT. IN A BOAT YOU ARE WIDE OPEN ANYTHING CAN HAPPEND QUICK AND YOU DONT HAVE ANY COVERAGE. ANY IDEAS.....

I think you mean maggots.  Anyway you need to know your statues.  Do you have a failure to yeild to an emergency vehicle that applies to boats, failure to comply, obstruction of justice or such statues that apply to boats.  You need to know if the other boaters are ignoring you or what ever, if you can take them to jail, it's amazing how the threat of a trip to jail improves cooperation, just be sure that you can back up the threat.  If you do take a few people to jail, work generally gets around and that improves cooperation also.

Are you asking about when a stop hits the fan? Like possible gun fire? or a fight?
