Rescue

Here's a video of a rescue. This is from four days ago, showing a 27' fishing boat that came unglued then capsized off North Carolina. Everyone stayed together and they had a PLB or an Epirb.



Cheers

Rescue

Are they drunk?

Sure hear lots of F-bombs and MFs, even when the CG rescuer shows up. Just seems kind of disrespectful IMO.

Good thing they had that PLB. Without it they might have been out there a long time. The flare was of no help.

I wonder why the boat split?

Without the PLB things could have ended alot differently. Did you notice how the guy wit the PLB was still holding on to it at the end of the video...no way he was letting go

Gee, I wonder if they were rocketing along at full speed repeatedly launching off the low swell laughing their heads off, until the boat split...

Exactly the thought I had.

The damage could be from impact with something harder than water. The absence of panic is as impressive as filming it on a phone is unsurprising. Well done CG, and the game fishing boat honoring its duty.

Good weather, other boats around, PLB. Rescue made to look easy. Not sure who the guy was trying to make the mayday call to on the cell phone.

Those are pretty small seas for a boat to come apart in. Unless it already had some structural damage. They hardly look like they're two feet. And the chop looks smaller than that.

As to the language, are you kidding me!? Those guys are sitting on an over turned sinking boat and you're criticizing their use of the word f#ck?

Seems like a fairly good time to use it if ask me.

Rescue

Well, I was taught "yes sir/mam" and "no sir/mam" when dealing with elders, superiors, authority. So to these ears it sounded disrespectful. I guess I sound like an old fogey, but I'm not really that old.

I get that they were excited, but every time you get excited you can't let go a string of hyphenated words. I have HS and college age kids and I constantly battle that. Heck, I have to reign myself in at times. The car biz has language similar to the military-- it's terrible behind the scenes. I would come home from work and my wife would have to remind me I wasn't at work anymore, so I guess that chastising has made me more aware and sensitive to it.

"Not sure who the guy was trying to make the mayday call to on the cell phone."

If the boat doesn't have a functioning radio, the CG often connects by cell phone if within range.... Or they'll get the cell number even if the radio is functioning, as a backup. He likely called 911 and they patched him through or got him to call back to the CG.

I am offended by the casual use of profanity and consider its use in any circumstances as an intellectual failure. In other words, when I hear a person use profanity in a casual manner my estimation of their IQ drops significantly? Public use of profanity I consider to be rude. Rudeness is not something that I want to emulate and will avoid people that are.

Having said that, I wasn't surprised by their language at all. Males of that age are notoriously stupid, rude, and offensive. I was impressed by the guardsman's demander. He is roughly the same age as those kids. He acted appropriately towards those kids' familiarity. He not only quickly helped make them feel comfortable, but assessed their situation. I am confident that the rescue swimmer would have taken a much more formal tone if I had been on the bottom of the boat instead of a bunch of 20 year olds. In other words, he adapted to the situation appropriately to complete his mission.

Another example of how well the USCG serves our community.

Indeed. And maybe some comforting bravado, when not feeling brave.
