I am familiar with DUI related laws regarding cars but what

I am familiar with DUI related laws regarding cars but what about on boats?What rights do the MD State police, MD Dept of Natural Resources Police or Coast Guard have to stop you? Do they have to have probable cause to pull you over? I understand that the coast guard does not have to have probable cause as they can stop anyone to do a safety check (is that correct?) but what about the other agencies?If I were pulled over can I respectfully ***** ***** officer about his/her probable cause and if none ask if I am free to go?Can I respectfully ***** ***** answer any questions?Is there an open container law for boating in MD? Am I allowed to have an open container or even drink while operating my boat (I don't drink to the point I am impaired but might have a beer or glass of wine while on a relaxing cruise).If I were pulled over on my boat and suspected of being impaired, do I have to consent to a field sobriety test? Do I have to consent to a breathalyzer or blood or urine test? What are the implications of refusing?
