Operating a boat and drinking don't mix. That's what more than dozen people found out Sunday during Boca Bash.

The annual boat party is held on Lake Boca.

FWC arrested 13 people for boating under the influence. There was also a drug-related arrest.

The wildlife agency says about 20% of boating fatalities in 2017 were alcohol or drug related.

In 2018 a man drowned during the event.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission suggests boaters designate a safe operator so everyone can have a safe and enjoyable time on the water.
