Upon conviction the court shall, as part of the judgment of conviction, order such person not to be in the actual physical control of any motorboat or personal watercraft under propulsion upon the waters of this state for any purpose for a period of six months from the date of such conviction. Such order shall be administered upon sentencing, upon final judgment of any appeal or review, or upon the date that any probation is revoked.

If the court places such person on probation or suspends the sentence for any reason, the court shall, as one of the conditions of probation or sentence suspension, order such person not to be in the actual physical control of any motorboat or personal watercraft under propulsion upon the waters of this state for any purpose for a period of sixty days from the date of the order; and

(2) If such person has had one or more prior convictions, such person shall be guilty of a Class I misdemeanor.

Such order shall be administered upon sentencing or upon final judgment of any appeal or review. The two-year court-ordered prohibition shall apply even if probation is granted or the sentence suspended.
