Flybyknight is on a distinguished road
I joined the USCG AUX for the purpose of camaraderie and nautical knowledge quite some time ago. Put in a lot of study effort and commitment. Found out I could not fit in very well. The reason why I finally quit was the fact that if a boat is in distress right in front of you, but not in danger of sinking, and there were no injuries, we were NOT permitted to offer a tow because that would take business away from Tow Boat US et al.
I subsequently joined the US Power Squadron and earned the grade of Navigator.
Now there I was able to make many life long friends.
