Coast Guard boarded us 7-Sept. @ 15 miles SSE of the Matagorda Jetties.
Safety shakedown and equipment verification.
They deployed a smaller RIB out of the Cutter "Tiger Cat".
Lucky I had brought my ditch bag with me as "COCONUTS" flares were expired!
Anyone know what the fine is for that?
They also wanted to have a look to see if we had any illegal snapper on board. Of course, we would never keep an illegal, out of season fish.
These guys were absolute professionals. Really nice guys that do us all a great service.
Great day on the water with a good bunch of guys!
There was one boat that tried to get back in the jetties and avoid the CG, unfortunately for them, the CG had their 42' RIB boat with them that day, caught up with them about a mile outside the jetties. I wonder how that conversation went?
