I agree that they need training on a continuing basis. I for one would not want our coast guard guys and gals out there at all if we were not willing to provide them with the resources to train. But im sure were going to get 1000 or so posts about how our tax money is being spent and bla bla bla into infinity.I honestly believe that organisations like CG do this stuff as a training exercise because there are no real emergencies and they have the budget anyhow. But one could get really pi$$ed if your boat was on fire and the CG resources were all busy dealing with a seasick sailor.
