    NBC had a segment of this Coast Guard rescue on their TV news show last night.

    Thank you Coast Guard! :thumb:

    I don't think they have to worry about a bill.

    Does the Coast Guard ever bill for people doing stupid things?

    Every winter the Air National guard is called to rescue hikers who get stranded in a storm while hiking in sneakers - I know they have been known to send bills.
    I don't know that they are necessarily paid but they are sent.

    Sometimes boaters don't watch their fuel levels, and usually a commercial towing company is used.
