When your 21 foot Malibu ski boat can’t avoid hitting a moored 50 foot sailboat in Northport Harbor, you might want to consider turning in your recreational boater’s license.

If the collision occurs because you are intoxicated, as appears to be the case this past Saturday night (or early Sunday morning according to some of the news reports on this particular incident), other people, such as the authorities, may make that decision for you.

Luckily, nobody was injured (including the family of four on the sailboat), but the 52 year old operator of the Malibu was arrested for Boating While Intoxicated.
