Petition to rescue Coast Guard boat for Hope Cove
We wrote about the brave men who rescued a 15-year-old girl who had been swept out to sea.
They used a boat they had spent their own money repairing, and had been waiting for weeks for the Coast Guard to give the boat its OK. If they had continued to wait for official approval, and not put their boat to sea, the girl would have been lost.
Now officials have removed the rescue boat from the station. Hope Cove needs its boat back.
Julia Mitchell alerted us to an online petition to rescue the boat at the aptly named Hope Cove.
