    The Coast Guard LA port police and DHS check the ships if they find something they call us same thing if it’s in the water a lot of our training is just mapping the bottom and training on moving around in 5 foot visibility define what we need to find and then make it go away
    Navigation underwater is definitely a challenge

    Based on the "V", I'd say this is a Mandella or a splash.

    I always thought the Lavey was a true flat bottom. Thanks for the heads-up.

    In the old days I would leave about 3am and drive to the River. Nothing better than diving down Rice Road with the sun coming up, looking in the rear view mirror and seeing the sun reflecting off the blower and scoop!

    Calacatta Blanco is a color sold by MSI, Vadara, Arizona Tile, Home Depot and a bunch of others. It was historically made by Monica, LE and a couple others in China.

    It is very popular and has gotten very expensive with the new taxes imposed on Quartz.

    Pick a color, 60 different colors and patterns to choose from. :)

    No,
    Being a dual status Sergeant/Detective,
    and working Metropolitan Division (C Platoon), and experience in vehicle wiring schematics all got me in.
    If you can succeed in a line Platoon in Metropolitan Division, you’re good to go for this stint.

    Very cool, it looks like a ton of fun. Something different every day. I spent quite a bit of time growing up at El Toro and Mira Mar with the EOD guys doing the airshows with my buddy and his dad. Good times.

    Just a follow up because this kinda pisses me off....harbor patrol gets there and ties a line on and attempts to keep the boat from burying further onto shore with their 22 whaler (obviously can’t pull it off the beach). Coasties get there with that big ol bad ass rib and refuse to throw a line and pull them off. Presumably because there’s no eminent danger. I’m sure it’s their policy for fear of liability. But come on, that rib would’ve yanked this poor dude right off the shore. Instead they sit there and wait for the pirates (aka sea tow) to show up and yank them off for 3k! It just irritates me that common sense is squashed because of frevilous lawsuits that run policies.

    Sorry rant over.

    Yup. All it takes is one retard to sue someone else for their own mistake. Liability's all around us acting in an official capacity. That "Sailor" should never have been in that situation to begin with.
