No excuses there. The sailboat was even under sail. Nobody was hurt, fortunately.
UPDATE: The Charter boat that quite apparently collided with the sailboat is owned by a new fishing charter company. According to Pete, the charter boat was out on it's first paying trip. Not an auspicious start.
No serious injuries in today’s collision near Thomas Point between a charter fishing boat out of Kent Island and a J105 sailboat out of Annapolis. @USCG will take the lead on the investigation. pic.twitter.com/1wyFpni24x— Maryland NRP (@MDNRPolice) August 17, 2018
