  15. He is Correct it is a requirement if you have one... and all should even if portable... Radio Watchkeeping Regulations In general, any vessel equipped with a VHF marine radiotelephone (whether voluntarily or required to) must maintain a watch on channel 16 (156.800 MHz) whenever the radiotelephone is not being used to communicate. Source: FCC 47 CFR §§ 80.148, 80.310, NTIA Manual 8.2.29.6.c(2)(e), ITU RR 31.18, 52.244 In addition, every power-driven vessel of 20 meters or over in length or of 100 tons and upwards carrying one or more passengers for hire, or a towing vessel of 26 feet or over in length, as well, as every dredge and floating plant operating near a channel or fairway, must also maintain a watch on channel 13 (156.650 MHz) --channel 67 (156.375 MHz) if operating on the lower Mississippi River-- ; while navigating on U.S. waters (which include the territorial sea, internal waters that are subject to tidal influence, and, those not subject to tidal influence but that are used or are determined to be capable of being used for substantial interstate or foreign commerce). Sequential monitoring techniques (scanners) alone cannot be used to meet this requirement; two radios (including portable radios, i.e. handhelds) or one radio with two receivers, are required. These vessels must also maintain a watch on the designated Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) frequency, in lieu of maintaining watch on channel 16, while transiting within a VTS area. See 33 CFR §§ 2.36, 26, and 161; 47 CFR §§ 80.148, 80.308-309; NTIA: NTIA Manual Chapter 8.2.29.7. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  20. Rainbows on Cayuga this year have been both plentiful large and great fighters... client this young man landed one Sunday despite the roaring wind that would make any trout lover sing...have pretty much been able to rig up for salmon and bows and get them on board even Mid day ... temps on the lake went wacky with down temps in the high 50s as low as 85 feet took going 95 plus down to break 50... pulled a nice salmon down 90 and this rainbow down 80....amazing what wind and storms did to break up thermocline and scatter the fish...but this young man’s smile made me happy !!

  25. A good question, the auxiliary operates for a number of objectives. They are Search and Rescue, Boater Education, Vessel Inspections, Marine Monitoring under the department of homeland security. A boater broken down while that can lead to a rescue is not an emergency. The protocol requires us to first have them obtain a tow from any commercially available source. On Cayuga after 5 there is none. Secondarily issue a marine assistance broadcast for a good samaritan on channel 16, done no answer. Thirdly if available utilize a good samaritan in the area. When there is a risk to life and property we get involved, like the sailboat adrift becalmed with broken engine at 10 pm I pulled to harbor, or the broken down boat adrift ahead of a severe inbound thunderstorm we towed in. We work as a federal asset on the lake, there are a limited number in this case we were the only one covering 38 miles of lake. We need to be kept available for emergencies...boat sinking... people missing...medical emergency etc. In this case the second potential good samaritan agreed to assist, with instruction and guidance they completed the tow while we monitored and shut down the entrance of the marina so it would make it safer for them to enter. The two families involved appeared to strike up a friendship and it ended quite well. What I have learned from this post is that most people would render assistance and there are a few that take the approach of its not my problem piss off. I guess that should not surprise me, yet it does. It also disappoints. Hopefully that helps clarify...and hopefully when asked to help, the majority would....
