you're confusing the issues. What is "reasonable" is not what is reasonable to a specific person in the situation, but a reasonable person in the situation. Thus, a boat out at 2 am, it is "reasonable" to assume it is lobstering. The fact (discovered afterward) that there are students on board studying SF's doesn't change that analysus (and is, IMO irrelevant,,,, students don't take bugs?)
Boat arriving at 9am - maybe it just came from Clemente or Cortes? How does F&G know? Cuz the capt tells them? Capts don't lie?
I think the civil liberty crowd look ridiculous fighting this fight, but oh well.
