They have to recover all the boats and clear the coast area so that they can save the tourist industry there. But no need to help the locals who live there.

all that resources just for one boat? that doesn't even make sense. Is this some kind of a US coast guard sponsored recruitment campaign effort? they must be low on new recruits…

Beckah M says:

Waste of time and money. When a hurricane comes here, people take their boats out of the water because it's common sense

Ed Arenz says:

Good work Coast Guard!

Ben Harris says:

Probably spend more recovering the boat than it was worth
