Coast Guard Foundation Raises the Bar

Recently, I was fortunate to attend the Coast Guard Foundation’s 34th Annual Salute to the Coast Guard in New York City, where honors were bestowed and funds were raised at a gala event in a midtown hotel. Before a crowd of nearly 700 comprising numerous U.S. Coast Guard officers, including the newly installed Commandant, Admiral Paul F. Zukunft, local dignitaries, commercial-shipping and shipbuilding representatives, and friends and family of the Coast Guard and its members, the foundation honored the heroic acts of the helicopter crew CG-6515 from Point Reyes, California (above), and the crew of Motor Life Boat 47212 (MLB) from Station Humboldt Bay, California (below). Both exhibited exceptional bravery in the line of duty to rescue civilians in dangerous situations, and a video presentation showing interviews with the Coast Guard personnel involved highlighted both their extraordinary poise in some challenging situations as well as their startling youth.

The Deck Perspective

The best thing about summer where I live in coastal Connecticut—and we’re in the thick of it as I write this—is the way we can live within a stone’s throw of the Sound (as in Long Island Sound) yet manage to keep things separate enough that it offers a true disconnect. By disconnect I don’t mean it in the what the hell is going on with this Wi-Fi? way but in the good unplugged way, that feel the warmth of the summer sun on your shoulders way. Keeping a boat nearby is the surest way to effect a much-needed escape, even for a little while. It’s funny, the difference I feel from when my feet are on my driveway to when they actually touch the deck of a boat, is downright stark.

Often puzzled, never stumped: The author figures every question has at least one good answer.

Crystal Clear

Sometimes the best navigational aid is in front of you.


In 2013, I was asked to take two couples from Stuart, Florida, to New Orleans in a 49-foot Eastbay for Jazz Fest, a route I was very familiar with. During preparation for this trip I met Capt. Stan Morse and his best mate Judy onboard their boat, Folly, in a mooring field on the South Fork of the St. Lucie River in Stuart. They were in the process of returning home to Destin, Florida, after several months of island hopping. 

Sometimes the best navigational aid is right in front of your face.
