    Nothing is more scarey than hearing “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!”  on the radio when you are on the water….

    Nothing is better than hearing, “Coast Guard to vessel in distress….”    you know they’ll try to get you.

    The coast guard are the most under rated rescue / slash law enforcers in the family of law enforcement. They do some amazing things. I got a tour of one of the hydrofoils they use , and the top speed was classified . But let me tell you, for a 100 ft ship when they hit top speed and come up out of the water they can chase down any drug runner in a sleek scarab in a heart beat !

    Sorry to hear about your boat guys! Amost every weekend I do a little tour of the harbor before I go out fishing. I pass by the fish pier and if the “Plan B” is tied up at the dock, I always get a hi or hello from the men on the Plan B. They seem to be a nice bunch of pro’s. It will feel a little sad passing her spot at the dock and her not being there! Again, sorry guys, and look out for my boat “riffraft” and say hello!
