We go surfing down there and have seen those guys going out when the onshore gets blowing hard. It looks insane but I'd love to go for a ride in it.

WOW. Some incredible shots there. I remember they took delivery of one of those 47 footers at the Manasquan CG station about 3 or 4 years ago. They are badass boats. My fav:

I'm into windsurfing and I vacationed alot around the Colimbia River Gorge, Sand Bar; also boat around the area as well, an average day is a small craft advisory! Hence why the Coast Guard trains in the area and I have leaned towards an older TG......

A terrible tragedy. It was early 1997 on a real mission at night. Three died one survived.



I graduated from the Motor LifeBoat School in December of 1990 and spent three years driving 44 MLB's out of Station Chetco River. Looking back it really was an incredible experience, I used to fish out of Ilwaco with my dad and got my first glimpse of the Coast Guard on those fishing trips when I was very young.



In 2000 I took delivery of a brand new 47 in Slidell and delivered it on its own hull to San Juan, Puerto Rico…just another incredible experience I was fortunate to be a part of.

That's the one....Very sad....Look how well the boat held up after a pounding like that. Anything else there wouldn't be anything left.
