  1. They are equipped with some high tech kit these days - a long way from eight fit and fearless men in an open rowing boat.

  12. The Coast Guards of any country are indeed amazing and skilled first responders...though often they also are the last ones looking for remains after accidents. So glad that there was a recent Coast Guard rescue of seamen inside a capsized ship, by using torches to cut through the side of the ship.
