  • Title: info
    Descriptive info: W.. hen a paddle craft canoe, kayak, or paddleboard is found adrift, the first question is whether someone was aboard or whether it simply blew or floated away.. Until the latter is confirmed, it must be assumed that someone was aboard and no longer is.. A Search and Rescue mission (SAR) by the USCG must go out and search until the owner/operator can be contacted and confirms that the craft was merely adrift and that everyone is safe.. This is very costly and may be needless.. The problem is that, unlike sail and power boats, most jurisdictions do not require registration numbers on all paddle craft.. Without the familiar state coded numbers and letters on the bow, it is difficult to determine who the owner is and call them, unless they have taken action to identify themselves by putting their name and a telephone number on the craft.. Few do.. You can help alleviate this problem by permanently affixing your name, a cell phone number, and a land line telephone number to your craft in a visible place.. It doesn t have to be large, just legible.. You can simply label your vessel by using a magic marker, paint stick, or nail polish on the hull or deck of the paddle craft.. With this identification aboard, a SAR crew finding the craft can immediately call and determine the status of the owner.. If no answer, they will perform a standard search, according to conditions.. But when the owner is found to be safe, the Coast Guard can save man hours, fuel, and tax dollars available for a true distress situation.. NEW BOATING LAWS THAT EFFECT GEORGIA BOATERS.. Novice 1st 8hr course.. We already have boating courses scheduled that are GA DNR NASBLA approved so that you will be in compliance ahead of the game when the law takes effect.. Go to: USCGAUX.. and sign up today!.. Comprehensive course.. Effective July 1, 2014, anyone born on or after January 1, 1998, and those turning 16 years old thereafter, must complete a boating education course approved by the Department of Natural Resources prior to operating a motorized vessel on the waters of the state of Georgia.. This includes vessels that are owned, rented or leased.. Exemptions to this portion of the law include: those persons licensed by the U.. S.. Coast Guard as a master of a vessel, operating the vessel on a private lake or pond, or a nonresident who has proof that they have completed a National Association of State Boat Licensed Administrators approved boater education course or the equivalent from another state.. This portion of the law also states that anyone 12 to 15 years old may only operate a Class A vessel if the person has passed an approved safe boater course or is accompanied by a competent adult 18 years of age or older, not under the influence and carrying proper ID.. Any motorized vessel over 16 ft: Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3 vessels are not to be lawfully operated by anyone younger than 16 years old.. TAKEN FROM THE GEORGIA BOATING LAWS AND RESPONSIBILTIES HANDBOOK.. 2013.. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN 12 TO 15 YEARS OLD DRIVING YOUR BOAT UNDER YOUR SUPERVISION.. THIS EFFECTS YOU!!.. LEGISLATIVE REPORT GA, AS OF 4 APRIL 2013.. SIGNED INTO LAW ON APRIL 23, 2013 BY GOV.. DEAL.. Ed McGill, SLO-GA-D7.. OVERVIEW.. : Five bills of interest were introduced during the.. 2013 Session of the Georgia General Assembly.. ; including one major boating safety bill and one boat registration bill.. In addition, legislation creating the.. Grady County Lake Authority.. passed in both the House and Senate and sent to Governor Nathan Deal for his signature into law on 1 April 2013.. Two bills failed, including HB 212 that would have imposed additional exhaust muffling and noise levels on watercraft.. House Bill 316 also failed it would have required notification of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Georgia Crime Information Center of abandoned vessels under certain circumstances.. both House Bill 212 and 316 will be automatically carried-over to the 2014 Session of the Legislature.. The two major bills that passed in both chambers, and await the Governor s signature are detailed below:.. SENATE BILL 136 (NEW BOATER EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS, BUI, HUI, PENALTIES).. Following several hearings by the newly formed Lake Lanier Legislative Caucus of the Georgia General Assembly, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GaDNR) supported Senate Bill 136 in the Georgia State Senate.. The Bill was co-authored by six State Senators..  ...   Georgia.. Under this legislation,.. Effective July 1, 2014, and except as otherwise provided by this chapter, anyone born on or after January 1, 1998, who operates any motorized vessel on the waters of this state shall complete a boating education course approved by the department prior to the operation of such vessel.. The exemptions established for this section include a person:.. 1)Licensed by the United States Coast Guard as a master of a vessel;.. (2)Operating such vessel on a private lake or pond; or (3)A nonresident who has in his or her possession proof that he or she hascompleted a National Association of State Boat Licensed Administrators approved boater education course or the equivalency from another state.. Sections 12, 13, and 14.. deal with penalty violations, and the effective date of the legislation.. The statute, if passed in the Senate House, and signed into law by the Governor, will go into effect on May 15, 2013, except in cases involving convictions or pleas of nolo contendere, such would only begin to be counted on that same date.. However,.. the mandated boat-education requirements (relative to persons born on or after January 1, 1998) will go into effect on July 1, 2014.. HOUSE BILL 497 (AMENDMENTS TO GEORGIA BOAT SAFETY ACT).. This bill primarily revises provisions regarding the numbering and registration of vessels, application procedures and expiration provisions, etc.. House Bill 497 requires that decals issued by the Department of Natural Resources shall be maintained in legible condition.. Registration for vessels under this legislation shall expire on the last day of the month of the owner s birth in the last year of the registration period.. It also provides that registrations may be renewed any time after October 1 prior to the year of expiration.. If a certificate of number is allowed to expire, a renewal application may still be filed with the Department so long as the applicant pays the registration fee prescribed in the code section along with a $10.. 00 late fee.. When ownership of a numbered vessel changes while a valid registration is in effect, the new owner shall file a new application and pay the prescribed fee for a new registration.. The number assigned upon transfer of ownership shall be identical to the previous number unless such number has been reassigned by the Department during any expired registration period.. Changes brought about in this legislation (other than effective dates previously noted) will go into effect on 1 July 2013, assuming the Governor signs the bill into law..

  • Title: SSI lighthouse history
    Descriptive info: LONGEST RUNNING LIGHT TEAM IN AMERICA!.. ee article in.. D7 Breeze.. FOR 20 YEARS.. KEEPING THE LIGHT ON!.. Original, 1994, CG Auxiliary Flotilla 10-10 SSI light crew.. Original, 1810, SSI light destroyed in 1862 by Confederates before the Union invasion.. Keeping the St Simons light on for 20 years.. O.. n the afternoon of May 22, 2014, as part of our local observance of National Safe Boating Week, U.. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 10-10, St Simons Island, held a reception to honor our own seven keepers of the St Simons Island light and to pay tribute to their exceptional 20 year mission.. The event was held at the Gazebo on the grounds of the iconic St Simons Island Lighthouse.. Even on this Thursday, their regularly scheduled workday, the committed light team did not join us on terra firma until they had finished their routine obligation at the top.. A delegation from Coast Guard Station Brunswick headed by Senior Chief Trey Bennett; the Honorable Cornell Harvey Mayor of Brunswick; Coastal Georgia Historical Society s Director, Curator and other members, who are the caretakers of the tower, keepers cottage and grounds; as well as fellow members of Flotilla 10-10 and their families gathered to honor the continuous mission of our dedicated volunteer light crew.. Surrounded by Coastal Georgia s majestic live oaks, cedars and palms that, try as they might, can t quite reach its statuesque 104 foot height of the current renowned St Simons Island light faithfully flashing its patented beamed out to sea since 1872.. The historic light has guided seafarers into safe harbor throughout the years with two exceptions; 2 years during WWI and 3 years during WWII.. The reason: all lighthouses from Maine to Florida went dark so as not to give aid to the daunting German U-boats, lurking offshore with full intentions of sinking American vessels.. The first St Simons Island lighthouse was 75 feet tall and built in 1810 by James Gould who became its light keeper.. That first lighthouse was destroyed by retreating confederates so that the Union ships could not benefit from its light as an aid to navigation.. The long historical significance and background on our famous St Simons Lighthouse can be found fairly easily but the following is a bit of little known history and other nuggets regarding the ongoing mission of Flotilla 10-10 s extraordinary light team:Mr.. Bob West has been a member of Flotilla 10-10 St Simons Island for over 37 years.. He grew up on St Simons and remembers playing in its legendary lighthouse as a boy.. Now, into their 20.. th.. year of constant light keeper service, Bob is still playing in that lighthouse with the other founding crew member, Jeff Cole, and the rest of CGAUX Flotilla 10-10 s volunteer light keepers.. Bob still remembers the day in 1994 that the Coast Guard called on him to request he put together a small band of Auxiliary volunteers to take over the SSI light care and maintenance.. He dutifully accepted the assignment.. He and Jeff assembled a crew and the rest is a part of the vast historic past of this widely acclaimed, post card perfect SSI lighthouse.. In 1984, the Coastal Georgia Historical Society leased the St.. Simons Lighthouse tower and keepers cottage from the U.. Coast Guard and opened it to the public.. The Coasties were still the light keepers for ten years until all those official duties were turned over to the capable hands of the current U.. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 10-10 s volunteer light team in 1994.. Today, a seven man crew still includes two of the original Auxiliary volunteers from May of 1994; Jeff Cole and Bob West.. The current crew now also includes: Ralph Ainger, Al Dixon, John Farmer, Bill Wiggins Randy Irwin.. David Melvin was also a long time member and Capitan Burney Long, Coast Guard retired, was beloved as one of the original band of Aux volunteers who stayed active with the team until he passed away in 2013 after 50 years of service to community and country.. In 2004, the lighthouse was deeded to the Coastal Georgia Historical Society under the Lighthouse Preservation Act after a long a successful lease from the U.. Coast Guard to the Society.. The close knit team of Auxiliary volunteer light keepers came with the deal because even though the lighthouse and keepers cottage has become a historic museum store and tourist magnet, that bright and shiny beacon at the top  ...   circular deck that inspires awe in its 180 degree scope of magnificent sights so high above St Simons Sound and the popular Pier Village.. They seem exhaustively happy to impart their brand of colorful local history to those guests who may inquire.. But back to work In addition to polishing each of these individual glass prisms and each ones brass frames of the 155-year old, Third Order Fresnel (fray-NEL) lens, the team checks the back-up emergency radio, the moving parts and lubrication of the 3,000 lb gear mechanism, which keeps the lens turning.. They test the electrical system, the high intensity light bulb and the back-up bulb, that automatically takes a failed bulbs place; then they cover the photo sensor to see if the light will automate at dusk.. All this insures that the 1000 watt bulb, magnified by the exquisitely polished lens, shines brilliantly for up to 23 miles seaward, rotating to produce one (1) uniquely patterned, dazzling flash per minute.. The St Simons lighthouse is part of the St Simons Bar Channel range.. When mariners approach St Simons Sound any night or in reduced visibility, they will visibly place the light from the Lighthouse tower in the center of the two lighted, steel towers located just into the Frederica River at the south tip of St Simons Island.. When these 3 tower lights are lined correctly, the vessel s pilot is able to safely maneuver through the deep Bar Channel buoys and be assured he will not run aground.. In daylight hours, the tower its self is also a charted daymark distinguished by its bright white structure with black trim.. Because of the guiding St Simons Island lights valuable service to commercial mariners and the Port of Brunswick, the Brunswick Pilots Association provides a back-up generator power source to the lamp in case of electrical failure.. Over the years and in addition to the general weekly maintenance and function assurance checks, the crew has changed countless bulbs, repaired wiring, replaced the turning motor, polished brass, painted and restored anything that s broken.. Indeed, the whole operation is a crucial element of the Coast Guard motto Semper Paratus.. For sure, these men are deserving, yet unsung heroes who have been on mission, reportedly, longer than any other light team in the United States!.. Just as the historic St Simons light keepers of old, Flotilla 10-10 s light team are devoted guardians who keep the light on because they are committed and steadfast to their vital assignment.. They love the light and are eager to tell the tales of its fascinating history and legends.. The SSI light team is one of the Island s best kept secrets.. But wait the cat has begun to break out of the bag as more and more folks realize that our renowned lighthouse isn t just another pretty face.. Our faithful band of Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 10-10 volunteer light keepers, dutifully maintain the celebrated major attraction of our Island home and keep the picturesque St Simons Light as a fully functioning ATON (Aid to Navigation.. ) Their 20 year mission and beyond: To bring mariners at sea, safely to port.. To that end, we say Bravo Zulu!!.. Rebuilt in 1873, it stands 104 feet w/129 steps to the observation deck.. SSI light s Rare 3rd order Fresnel lens, 1 of only 15 originals left in the U.. See this article in.. Elegant Island Living.. Capt.. Burney Long Dave Melvin at the turning motor.. Captain Burney Long, USCG retired US CGAUX with over 50 years of service.. USCG Aux Flotilla 10-10 is so very proud of the 20 years of dedicated service by our light crew volunteers.. Billy Wiggins Bob West checking light s emergency radio.. Shining 23 miles out to sea..

(A police-type whistle and a flashlight comply with these requirements.. ).. Be AWARE.. that the new beach craze,.. paddleboards.. , are also considered vessels by the USCG.. Therefore, the USCGAUX also awards the VSC seal to all.. paddlecraft.. that pass the safety check! (.. see info requirements for paddlecraft.. )..

If you are uncertain about the Federal, State and Local safety requirements for your boat, one way to make sure you are in compliance is to schedule a Vessel Safety Check (VSC), offered as a free public service by the Volunteers of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary.. Be assured that if your boat does not earn it s decal for any reason, nothing is reported or written up.. The Auxiliary examiner will simply explain to you what your vessel needs so that you can choose to comply by securing the equipment needed.. Other federal and state agencies may also conduct similar types of checks.. However, we strongly recommend that you have your vessel inspected by a Coast Guard Auxiliary Vessel Examiner.. As a part of Team Coast Guard the Auxiliary is the civilian, uniformed arm of the U.. Coast Guard and highly trained in both Federal, State, and Local laws.. All boats do not require the exact same equipment.. The Aux examiners know what applies to your boat and will be happy to discuss and explain if you are uncertain..

Additionally, many insurance agencies offer discounts for vessel owners who undergo annual vessel safety checks..
