we used to look down at the Ponchetrain during the Travis-Honolulu crossing and talk on VHF to the Coasties aboard the ship.



I'll bet they appreciated the company. My late glider partner Morgan used to be a Coastie on the Ambrose Lightship, and hated it.

A rare pleasure would come when a United Fruit ship passing by would give an undocumented whistle signal that meant "We're dumping a big stalk of bananas overboard." They'd turn in their best times for whaleboat drill...;-)
