It astounds me that the US COAST GUARD doesn't have anything to say about the peices of you know what that is being allowed to dredge for gold in the bering sea. Those dredges are a menace to navigation and don't seem to have any life safety gear. Is it that they don't come under commercial boat safety regulations or are they considered a pleasure craft? This is some 40+ degree water and I don't see any survival gear or life raft cannisters or anything. Is there anyone who could contact the station in the area and see if they could respond and maybe prevent a loss. BM3 Jay Kemsley,

Jay, I know we use CAPSLOCK for logs and whatnot, but you don't need to use them here. It seems like you're yelling.
As far as the gold miners, perhaps if they're doing something illegal in the first place, they probably don't care too much about regulation gear on board. That would be my guess.

Are they American vessels or in American territorial waters? The answer to that might help answer your questions.
You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.
