Semper Paratus

The winter season in the Atlantic Ocean in well on us and, fortunately for wayward voyagers, the Coast Guard (motto above) is on the scene. Here's a jump to the 5th District press release can see that they've been busy searching for missing crewmen, rescuing tugs, locating overdue boaters and so on. Despite a penchant for enforcing rules and regs (what a drag) we really should be grateful for the Coast Guard...speaking from experience, if you ever need them you certainly will be. In my case we welcomed CG assistance to keep the S/Y Javelin from sinking to the grim depths of the Puerto Rican trench. For more on that read the Zephyr-exclusive sea tale "Eluding Davey Jones" in four parts here and here and here (and here).
