I thought I had seen this picture before until I read the story. It turns out it is just another drunk powerboater providing a cool (but expensive) picture for us.

I'm guessing that this is a $2.5 million loss for the owners? That's a lot of money sitting in the water.

So many stereotypes in this story:

- great big stinkpot
- drunk driver
- Boat named "Tar Baby" - in Alabama. Nice.
