    My future son in law?



    You may have heard we had some big waves this weekend in CA.
    This is the Noyo river bar Fort Bragg Ca. Last weekend
    Eric is at the helm getting a qualification as a Surf-man in the Coast Guard.
    I have been told he is 1 of a 100 or so in the service.

    Wow. . that's impressive

    They look like they sitting there for a casual cruise on that boat. I would be screaming and wearing one of those SS Minnow donut savers.

        Last summer I overnighted at Ft Bragg/Noyo and docked just across from the CG Station. What an interesting harbor, if you can call it that. The approach into the harbor is one boat wide, across a bar and under Hwy 1 bridge! Once inside it’s a dinky little place but quaint as a Steinbeck painting. My hats off to the Coastie men and women! They fulfill a risky but necessary mission!

          He couldn't let his future son-in-law show him up so he was out there side by side taking the pictures.

              One of my college roommates was a CG vet and told me about some of the training, this is the late sixties, and he only mentioned this kind of training. There are several CG vets in our yacht club and they have all done that training. It's really interesting to listen to them talk about the training and rescues. One of the guys went to the Academy and talked about a tradition where each class places an object or sign at the top of the USS Eagle. Every cadet goes all the way to the top of the masts at some point.
              Yup, studs. I'm not sure what the female equivalent is, but the guys have nothing on them.

              The pix are from a local photographer for the Fort Bragg papper. You all have seen some of my pix. I cant take a good selfie!
              One of my daughters was a member of the crew on that boat. One of the others was SAR and a med tech in Alaska .
              That means I can never call the coasties for help as I would never hear the end of it. God help me if I have there mom on board and have to make that call.

                That is a self righting USCG 47' MLB with
                twin indestructible Detroit Diesel pushing her.

                  I wouldn't think that there'd be too much to rescue if one was caught in those seas! That is some kind of scary.
                  Is it just wind and rapidly shallowing depths that cause those waters, or tidal abnormalities?

                    I just asked, it is the same boat In the video as in the pix. We got a short ride a few years back. Out to the edge of the bar and back into the harbor. I can tell you those things are built. I was talking with one of the coxswain and was told they cant roll them in training any more. The boat comes through fine. It brakes to many expensive little things off to justify the cost.
                    The Noyo River bar can be challenging check out this video from a few years back.

                      Yup she is the best that money can buy!
                      USCG's first all aluminum MLB that is.
                      there's are three levels of coxswein at NMLBS training...those boys stationed at Noyo river should be all 47 MLB surfman.
