U.S. Coast Guard Station Sand Key rescued two missing boaters Sunday after their personal watercrafts ran aground near North Clearwater Beach. A 29-foot Response Boat Small-II boatcrew was launched and located the couple stranded with their personal watercraft aground in shallow water. The two Ohio natives stated they ran aground after going past shallow water and hazard signs. The boatcrew transported the two people to shore. There were no reported injuries. The couple plan to take a boating safety course today, and plan to take their entire vacation party of 25 people back to the area to educate everyone on hazard signs and shallow water. "In this area, you can quickly go from being in 6-foot water to being in shallow water," said Petty Officer 3rd Class Ashley Esteves, officer of the day at Station Sand Key. "We ask all boaters to research the area before getting underway." Boaters can check tides, charts and weather through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association.

U.S. Coast Guard terminated the voyage of the yacht Zenith at Sea Isle Marina after discovering several safety issues and environmental concerns. “We urge people to request to see the vessel operator’s valid credentials or proof of required inspection or examination before hiring a charter vessel,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Emily White, a Coast Guard 7th District watchstander. "Passengers are risking their safety by hiring a charter vessel without a credentialed mariner in charge or aboard an uninspected vessel which is subject to federal regulations."

#Watch U.S. Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach boatcrew assist a Cape Coral family after their boat ran aground near Sanibel Island. Sector St. Petersburg watchstanders received a call from the Cape Coral family stating they were stranded on a sand bar. Among the family were two children, ages two and four. Watchstanders issued a Marine Assistance Request Broadcast which asks for assistance from boaters in the area. After receiving no reply to the broadcast, a U.S. Coast Guard Station Fort Myers Beach 29-foot Response Boat Small-II boatcrew was launched. The boatcrew transported the family to the station with no reported injuries. The family stated they will arrange for salvage of the boat. The boat does not currently pose a hazard to navigation.

Don’t let a rip current ruin your #FridayFun Rip currents are powerful, narrow channels of fast-moving water that flows away from the beach, perpendicular to the shore. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), rip currents can move faster than an Olympic swimmer at speeds of up to eight feet per second! Do not try to counter a rip current by swimming straight back to shore. If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore and swim back to land at an angle.

#TBT On January 8, 2011, three boaters were rescued by a Coast Guard rescue helicopter crew off the coast of Georgetown, South Carolina. The Coast Guard was able to locate the boaters after receiving a maritime distress signal from an emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB) registered to a 48-foot fishing vessel. Having a properly registered EPIRB allows the Coast Guard to calculate an accurate position of a distressed vessel. When an EPIRB is activated it sends a signal via satellite to the nearest rescue coordination center that dispatches rescue crews to the location! If you are planning on taking your boat out this summer consider purchasing an EPIRB!

Winston Churchill once said, "The price of greatness is responsibility." Taking command of a cutter is quite a responsibility. Today, Vice Adm. Scott A. Buschman, the Coast Guard Atlantic Area Commander, presided over a change of command ceremony where Cmdr. Carmen S. DeGeorge transferred command of the Coast Guard Cutter Resolute to Cmdr. Roy R. Brubaker. The event, though not specifically prescribed by Coast Guard regulations, is part of a heritage of seafaring customs. Parading crew attendance and a public reading of the official orders stems from when movement of mail and persons was a slow process. This procedure was designated to ensure that only authorized officers held command and that all were aware of the transfer of authority. Who was your greatest commanding officer, commander, officer in charge or boss? Tag them in the comments below!

#WednesdayWisdom Have a Designated Boater! One of the fastest ways to end your fun and spoil your summer is to receive a serious boating under the influence (BUI) ticket. You should always have a designated boater when you’re on the water just like you would have a designated driver on the road. The designated boater shouldn’t even have a sip!

Stay Hydrated! As the summer approaches and temperatures begin to rise, it&#39;s important to stay hydrated! It&#39;s essential to bring plenty of fluids when heading to the beach or taking your boat out. Dehydration can cause fatigue and dizziness so be sure to stay healthy and hydrated by drinking water throughout the day! #TuesdayTip
