Coast Guard Training

Took this last winter. Will be back with a longer lens next time. This is a large crop. It is a lot of fun to watch these guys. They will do this for an hour or so, backing into the waves at speed and almost submerging the boat. These are self-righting boats. They can roll completely over and will bring themselves back up. Very impressive. Back in the day I worked on the boat house renovations that allowed these boats to be housed here. We had to raise the boat house a few feet and put in new docks and facilities to support the new boats. Very nice equipment for a very important and dangerous job. My hat is off to these guys.

Enjoy, Dave
