“I wouldn’t be caught dead on that thing…” — MN Coast Guard

It was bound to happen, and today was the day. The Coast Guard and Sheriff’s Dept. came to inspect the Miss Rockaway Armada. We passed! With flying colors (more or less).

A sergeant from the Sheriff’s Dept. was overheard on his phone saying, “If I called in a report on this, no one would believe it.” One of the Coast Guard officers commented, “I wouldn’t be caught dead on that thing…that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be a lot of fun.”

In all seriousness, the Coast Guard was professional, respectful, and definitely had our safety in mind. We’ll be in contact with them throughout the trip.
