Another "Bravo Zulu" to the USCG from the Wet West Coast of Canada. Some of the rescues in Southern Coastal BC waters is carried out by USCG, just as some North Washington Coastal waters rescues are carried out by Canadian Search and Rescue.

I don't know if the Canadian Search and Rescue Choppers are still in Boston, this is a story in 2005, but two Choppers were being based out of Boston, while American Search and Rescue were aiding in the war effort.

Here is the chopper the Canadian Forces uses for rescue:
