This past weekend the Coast Guard station in Muskegon hosted an open house. The public was allowed to tour the station, the boats and gain a detailed look into day to day Coast Guard life. Here are some pictures that show aspects of the Coast we might not all normally see.
On Memorial Day weekend the colors were flying
27 Footer used in Search and Rescue.
Dry Suits, tested this winter by station personnel swimming in their boat basin off the Muskegon Channel.
PFD with room for gear.
Grounding cable used in helicopter resuce.
The station watch room’s chart case showing that the USCG still makes use of paper charts.
Aft Control station in the 49 footer used to set buoys and other aids to navigation.
The Coast Guard does not go unprepared or unarmed.
Did you know….the 1st 2 numbers this sequence equal the boats length. Same with any other Coast Guard Vessel
