Some of us have had the unpleasant experience of having a great party broken up by the local sheriff, campus cops, or the dreaded Military Police.
But sometimes having folks in uniform show up can be a good thing… like when the Coast Guard saves you and your best buddies when your bachelor party doesn’t quite go according to plan:
The Coast Guard rescued eight male boaters, who were a part of a bachelor party, Saturday from a grounded 21-foot recreational boat on a sandbar off the coast of Capers Island, South Carolina.
Coast Guard Sector Charleston was notified a little after 2:30 a.m.
A Coast Guard Air Station Savannah MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew arrived on the scene at 3:50 a.m.
They hoisted four boaters and transported them to Mount Pleasant Regional Airport. The crews later returned to hoist the other four boaters. Via wtoc.com
Most of us have been harangued by a senior NCO or petty officer before a long weekend about how nothing good ever happens after midnight. We would like to remind you that while this statement might be a bit of an exaggeration on land, it is always true at sea. Especially if you are piloting a small watercraft late at night after a little celebrating.
So if you’re planning a bachelor’s party anytime soon, think about getting back to the dock when you notice the sun going down. The team here at MILFEED, your friends, your family, and the United States Coast Guard will all thank you for your prudence.
