I was intercepted by an identical boat last year 5 miles off the Gulf coast at Naples. Was running from Marco Island up to Sarasota to do the poker run. After a few questions they could see that I was legit and we had a friendly chit chat. They said "we sure are glad you stopped cause we were having trouble keeping up." LOL Just doin their job.

BL6,
Macomb County Sheriff has at least one new Fountain with outboards and it is labeled homeland security also.
Homeland security is funding a lot of purchases and they probably require their name on the equipment.

They stopped to say, "hello" to me as well when we rounded the Southern tip in KW. --- and yes, they were very polite as well.

Coast Guard up here has tried to keep up a bunch of times. I only got to talk to them once while at anchor though.

It's nice to see our wasted tax dollars at work. What the hell, I saw that same boat on lake Erie with a crew of three. The city of Cleveland has one man patrol cars on the street, yet the "powers to be" deems patrolling lake Erie more dangerous. Boy do I feel much safer. . .not.
