Operation Paddle Smart

Tue, 08 Sep 15   Posted by: Timothy Czeisel

Link to a video on paddle smart here.


"The Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary have teamed up to launch ‘Operation Paddle Smart,’ a campaign that provides free water-proof stickers for labeling owner identification and contact information to small, paddle craft vessels. aimed to benefit the entire U.S. maritime community.

With the increase of kayakers and paddlecraft enthusiasts getting out on the water, the number of vessels found adrift without its pilot have also increased. Unlike larger recreational or commercial vessels which share in the fortunate benefit of hull registration numbers and a vessel name that allow for the owner to be identified, kayaks and other forms of paddlecraft, characteristically do not have identifying features that allow for the owner to be contacted. As a result the Coast Guard spends hundreds of thousands of dollars each year engaged in search and rescue operations for cases where there was nobody in danger to begin with."

 Great example why the "If Found" sticker is so important:
