Kayaking back to Rowayton yesterday, just outside the main channel west of Norwalk, was hailed by a Coast Guard vessel and commanded to heave to for a "safety inspection". Questioned each of us about the gear we were carrying, took names, addresses, phone numbers and motored off. Interesting...
Here's the video of the encounter: https://www.getyarn.io/yarn-clip/640c8a46-2766-4728-ba04-895550a173c6
I've been approached at various times by CG Auxiliary or F&W at state ramps for something similar and the proffer of an ID sticker, but never on open water. Anyone know if this is a new policy or program?
