I honestly thought this couldn't be a hoax because the transmission would have to originate offshore, and who, I mean who, would actually BE offshore and initiate a hoax like this? It was a good point brought up by someone else on this thread that it could be someone with a beef with the CG. Prior boarding that didn't go well for them perhaps...

I hope they catch them.

I don't mean to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but it could be terrorists or foreign enemies testing our capabilities. There might be someone out there who wants to know how closely the USCG can pinpoint the locations of approaching boats.
