I love how they can beach launch some of those boats...

Personally, if I had been in good health, I would have joined the Coast Guard, It's these kinds of things that look like lots of fun to me.. (in a serious way)

A friend of mine was stationed on the Columbia River Bar when he was in the CG. He used to tell some wild stories about newbie recruits' first experience rolling one of those buggers. I guess you get to hold your breath for quite a while while you wait for it to right itself which can be quite disconcerting. His biggest fear in those parts was diving in a black rubber suit that looked a whole lot like a seal, one of the favorite foods of Orcas:)
