The FCC is probably more aggressive about tracking down misuse of the VHF marine channels than any radio service short of public safety. Reason being, the marine channels are essential to life and safety on the waterways. The FCC will track down marine VHF violations even if they're in a desert 200 miles from any body of open water big enough to float an ant. Seriously, if you need to communicate on a channel you're not licensed for, don't do it on a marine channel. Or a railway channel, for that matter.
