I realize you are just saying: "show me your facts and numbers" but, you are demanding that posters here become accountants and statisticians. If you really want exact numbers, I suggest you file a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Coast Guard - which any US citizen has the right to do - and once you obtain those numbers, come back here to refute any inaccurate statements.

Demanding those exact numbers up front, when honest people are exercising common sense and expressing those facts in good faith, is unreasonable. We can't possibly carry on a dialog if we need every number down to the penny before we express an opinion.
