Everybody,
I hear if you try drifting by the South Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and get too close, You can be sighted by the Coast Guard!! It's because the bridge is on an Elevated Alert!!!

I heard the distance from the bridge needed to be a minimum of 25 yards, not sure if this is correct.

Speaking from experience, don't even drift anywhere near the Tower at all, we thought we were at least 25 yards away but according to the Coast Gaurd we weren't. We saw them pull up on a charter boat and they didn't wave us off or give us any warning that we were too close yet they ticketed us anyways. So, my suggestion is too stay away because it will be up to their interpertation of wether you are too close or not. And it ain't worth it because then they have you follow them over to their Sausilito docks, give you a safety check, run your ID's, check your fishing license, check your fish, and "hawk" over you like your some criminal. Geezzz! Alot to go through to catch a few stripers.

Anybody know how much the fine is. I suppose it is a misdemeanor so you can actually be booked for violating the law.

If you get to close there is no fine, they just open up with the M60 that is about 400 rounds a minute of 7.62 ;D

I've seen a black CG inflatable at least I thought it was CG, packing an M2 up front and twin M60's out back.

Do I have to school you in weaponry also? No it's not 40mm, it's the link fed .50cal BMG. ;D

Oh sorry Dimpala..remember I'm a bed wetting whiny ass tree hugging liberal that hates the military and would rather dismantle it and use the money for other programs, and would rather stick my head in the sand than go after people that want us dead, maybe if we just talked to them and had open conversation with the Muslim extremist maybe they would leave us Infidels alone and not cut our heads off.....NOT!

That charter boat was the happy hooker and he had to pay a fine which I believe was 160.00
