The speedboat slammed into a fishing boat around 4:50 a.m., killing 39-year-old Christopher Mannino, of West Islip, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said.
“Christopher Mannino, you were my world. I was so lucky to have your children. I don’t have you now because a selfish careless person found it necessary to be intoxicated on the water and take your life,” Mannino’s widow said Thursday.
Police and Coast Guard will be out in full force stopping any boat owner who is speeding or operating the vessel in a reckless manner.
