How do you model this in your modern naval rules?

You've got to respect the US Coast Guard.

Yup. All the rest of US troops talk a lot of trash about the Coasties, but those poor bastards have to go out in a small boat to rescue someone who doesn't realize that 'small craft advisory' means anything under 100ft long shouldn't be out in the weather!

I grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan and used to marvel at the crap they went out in when it came to weather. They really aren't joking when they say "the Coast Guard heads out when the Navy heads in."

What's that motto – 'You've got to go out; you don't
have to come back.'

I have lots of friends who are former Coasties and some have kids I watched grow up that are currently Coasties. God bless em and keep them safe.

That line in most rulebooks that says:

"Submarines cannot be boarded."

Strike that out with a black highlighter.

It's not a true "submarine".

More like a semi-submersible, "stealth boat".

Not even on par with a WW2-era diesel sub. Maybe a WW1-era?

I gotta ask how that Coastie manages to stay afloat with those ginormous brass cojones, though? evil grin
