Ummm...... I'd kiss the feet of any nation's coast guard that was willing to spend the money on the fuel and risk the resources to save a foreign national like me. As for calling uncle Sam and having them call the local CG it would all depend on the relations between nations at the time wouldn't it? Besides, isn't that what happens when you press the EPIRB button? Doesn't the US get the signal and take if from there?

Here is a fine example of a boat in distress handled by a foreign coast guard.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
