  1. lol... I personally think it's a great idea. Professionally, it's probably not allowed. Ron
  2. Jim, thanks for the offer on the boat ride. Might have to take you up on that next year. PM Sent Ron
  3. Thanks everyone for your warm welcomes. Ron
  4. Right now I don't have a boat (just the work boats...lol) I spend most of my off time on my motorcycle and quads. I have fished in the past, but usually more into motorsports than anything. There is no official test for the DSC. If you do hit your DSC button, we will treat it as an actual search and rescue case until told otherwise. I do recommend ensuring your DSC radio is registered with current information and also connected to your GPS. This will help in a few ways if you are in distress. First it will pass us information on yourself (including phone numbers to contact persons for description of clothing) and info on your boat so we know what we are looking for if you are unable to answer your radios at any time. The GPS connection will pass us your current position in order for us to locate you faster and make the searching more efficient. As far as the safety certificate for your boat, you can go to the Vessel Safety Check website at http://www.safetyseal.net/GetVSC/ you type in your zip code and it will give you the e-mail and name of all examiners in your area. Hope this helps. Ron
  5. Good morning all. I always feel like I'm trying to fill out a profile for some dating site doing these intros. I'm a 33 year old married white male that likes to take long walks on the beach...lol Sorry, got a little ahead of myself. I am an Operations Controller at Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan. I just moved here from Astoria Oregon where I did a 4 year tour coordinating search and rescue missions on the Columbia River. This is my first time being in the great lakes area and I thought registering here with you guys would be a great way for me to learn the area better. I am open to any questions that you may have in regards to search and rescue and boating safety. I do not know everything, but I will do what I can to get you an answer as soon as possible. Ron
