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




Yup, they sure did like it when we'd talk to them from overhead on VHF. I was just now BS'n here on the phone with my old cadet classmate, Clay Lacy, out in Van Nuys, and he reminded me that it was the Coast Guard cutter, Ocean Station November, not the Ponchetrain that we used to talk to on VHF. Clay was the chief pilot of that ANG C-97 unit in Van Nuys and I was of the Guard unit here at Minneapolis. Anyhow, those coasties down there sure liked to talk to any female voice that we might have on board.

best, randy
