US Coast Guard needs YOU !!
Iíve been asked by Jim Davis, US Coast Guard Auxiliary Public Affairs Officer, Div. 1 San Diego, to help form a US Coast Guard Auxiliary PWC Squadron to patrol San Diego Bay, Mission Bay & the Colorado River.
The Coast Guard realizes the need for small, fast maneuverable craft to patrol where the Coast Guard boats canít.
Like you, I have seen stupid people do stupid/dangerous things on the Bay, launch ramp & at the River and wanted to say *something* to them....now you can.
This is a non-enforcement education-only position....no tickets or confrontations.
It is all expenses paid (while at the River on per diem) and you work whenever you have the time.
Interested Runabout owners email email@example.com for more information.
