Let's help the coast guard out by being proactive? I'm gonna look into where I can get a bunch of stickers. Maybe they can give me a couple hundred stickers to pass out at GSXI? Thoughts?

It's a good idea to save the CG from having to do search and rescue for every abandoned paddle craft, but judging from the comments under that 4.5 year old article the program has some problems.

If you can get the 200 stickers I'll put one in each GS11 bag.

The. USCG Aux used to hand them out at ORC. I was told a couple years ago that they stopped the funding for that program and weren't distributing them any more. Hopefully they brought it back. First people to contact would be USCG Aux.

That's a great idea Ryan. I would like one or two. Probably a good idea to hide one in a not so visible spot as well so that if a persons kayak was stolen.

I have one of those stickers inside my 2 kayaks.  I got them from a kayak instructor doing lessons at Quarry Lakes over 5 years ago.  They are very durable and a great idea.

I sent them a couple messages 1-2 months ago and they never responded. I requested a couple hundred and explained to them about NCKA and what/who we are. No response.

The Facebook page is inactive for the program. I sent another request to the founding flotilla of the program in Mendocino. Let's see hat happens. I sent the request before to the local flotilla here in Sac.

I usually mark my major equipment with my CDL number. Just as an identifier. I will be marking my Yaks with more identifiable info. Is there a location the Coasties prefer?

Same here.
 after I had picked up 4 stickers from the CG auxiliary at the salmon fest a couple of years ago . I haven't seen them again.
Great idea, and have them on both of my Kayaks and Banks board.

I'm trying to get an avenue of access via the CG Aux here in Santa Cruz.  I've done them a bunch of favors, let's see if there is reciprocation.

Some of the pebbled finishes on the kayaks preclude stickers from staying on for any length of time.

It's still a good reminder to include your contact info on your boat. I write all my relevant contact info (name, cell number, email address, DL number) with a Sharpie on the inside of the boat inside the main hatch. If you open the hatch, all the info is there staring at you.

This is very good advice for everyone, IMO.  Thanks, dtizz.

And thank you, Ryan for posting this up - doesn't matter if the article's old.  This is cutting edge stuff actually - we need to be ON this.

John has a good point about the finish on some yaks not accommodating stickers - that's why I like the sharpie idea.  But sharpie ink does wear off...

Honestly, when I first reviewed this post and the article my thought was that people should be charged if their aquatic vehicles get loose in public waterways and a search ensues...

This is an all around interesting issue that deserves more discussion and hopefully action.  I will definitely stand behind my offer to get them in every GS11 bag if we can come up with 200 of them.

Those stickers are damn near bombproof.  I wouldn't be too worried about it coming off without some effort on your part.
