47 Motor Life Boat Tour At USCG Station Gloucester With MK1 Kurt Lubbers

This is The First Part of A Ten Part Video Series-

CWO2 Luis Munoz extended an invitation to GMG to come down to the USCG Station Gloucester and see what it’s all about in anticipation of the upcoming Boating Safety Event. GMG Contributor Manny Simoes and I spent a fantastic morning at the station.

The entire crew at the Station was incredibly friendly and courteous and I can’t thank Chief Warrant Officer Munoz enough for the access he granted us..

In our first video we have FOB (Friend Of the Blog) Kurt Lubbers give us a tour or the inside compartments including the Survivors Compartment, Engine Room, Auxiliary Machinery Space, and All The Way Inside The Hold of The Boat.

You are cordially invited to attend US Coast Guard Station Gloucester’s Boating Safety Day.  This multi-partnered community event kicks off National Safe Boating Week on Saturday, May 21st, from 9am to 3pm and will take place at USCG Station Gloucester.  Our boating safety partners involved in this event include Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Coast Guard Auxiliary, US Power Squadron, State of Massachusetts Marine Environmental Protection, commercial fishing safety representatives and many others. The goal of this community event is to put all aspects of boating safety back in the public eye as we approach our spring and summer boating season.  We will showcase an assortment of search and rescue demonstrations, structured boating /paddling safety and Boating Under the Influence (BUI) forums, flare demonstrations, commercial fishing vessel safety, tours of Station Gloucester and vessels, as well as various informational booths.
