They can inspect me anytime.

I have nothing to hide.

And I know they'll show up if I'm in sh!t, it's a comforting tought.

Any Coasties here keep up the good work.

Very popular destination for Clear lake boaters. I would advise you get someone with local knowlege for the run from I-10 past Riverside inn to Rio Villa as the channel markers are a bit deceptive. The River varies from 12-30' deep. Have seen some very large boats (60-70') up as far as Old Highway 90.

Local knowledge also required for anything North of Old hwy 90(loves marina) You can go as far as the Lake Houston Dam.

I don't know about you guys but, most of the time I get chit from the State Police, not the coast guard.

Coasties usually just want to check out the boat and crew..... Learned that from a friend who was in the Coast Guard for 4 years.

Worse than the State Police are the local police when they're out. They have no knowlege of the rules of the water and try to call you on something that is BS....

In the end, I wave to them all the time, they wave back, I don't do anything stupid and never have any problems.

Same here. I grew up across from coast guard station annapolis. Shared the creek with them my entire life with no real issues. I've been pulled over by Department of Natural Resources police for "spot checks" 3 times in the last 2 years (all within 100 yards of my dock) where i live now.

I'm glad to see them checking to make sure people aren't drunk, but when i'm 100 yards from my dock I don't want to spend a half hour with some guy who wants to see the expiration date on my flares.

IMO, once they see you aren't doing anything wrong, they should say "thank you for your time and have a nice day" and let you get on with your weekend.

It's harder to get into the CG then the Navy, and boot camp is 100% tougher
