Sea Ray Boat Crashes Into Irondequoit Pier

An eight meter Sea Ray sport cruiser with one person onboard crashed into the pier of Irondequoit Bay, New York on 22:20 hours of Friday thirtieth June.  Monroe County Sheriff Office, US Coast Guard, Sea Breeze ambulance, and New York State Police responded to the call about the collision, with the sole person onboard taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for minor facial injuries. After receiving treatment the person onboard the vessel was arrested and charged for operating the boat intoxicated and without a boaters safety certificate.  The boat was removed the following morning by TowBoatU.S.
The Sea Ray in this collision is a 1998 to 2000 270 Sundancer.  Introduced as an evolution of the 1996 to 98 270, with sleeker lines and different stern giving a more spacious cockpit layout, but the same interior of six berths, and powered by single engine of about 300hp with stern drive.  The 270 Sundancer was replaced by the 280 Sundancer in 2001.
