If you are interested in joining the Coast Guard Auxiliary and be a part of our mission to improve Recreational Boater Safety, we could use you to make our waterways safer. During the vessel exam you will find that boat owners have a wide range of boating knowledge and skills. In some cases, you will learn from them. In other cases, you will find a receptive owner who is grateful for the knowledge you have shared because it directly affects their safety on the water.

If you're interested in finding out more or want to join our Flotilla 10-5, please contact Harry (Bud) McClard, Flotilla Staff Officer for Human Resources, at (603)-493-6984, or by email at
