The arrests were part of Operation Dry Water, which targets impaired boat operators in Missouri.
Aside from the eight weekend arrests for boating while intoxicated, troopers also issued 72 boating violation summonses and 390 warnings. Twenty-nine others received summonses for non-boating violations.
The campaign is in its sixth year and includes sobriety checkpoints, saturations and heightened awareness.
