The Maryland Senate gave its answer to the old question of "what do you with a drunken sailor" by voting to bring people who operate sailboats while intoxicated under the same law as power boat operators.
Senators voted 37-8 to add sail-only vessels to the list of watercraft it is illegal to operate while under the influence of alcohol. The bill now goes to the House of Delegates.
The voted came after Sen.
Colburn joined the opponents of the bill.
