  • Bulletin 22 April/May 2011 Page 6 On Deck Moving Forward RBS Give a little whistle How to wrap RBS in one small packageJiminy Cricket was right on the mark. When in trouble on a boat, Give a little whistle! For theCoast Guard Auxiliary, a sound making device is standard equipment when doing a VSC on apaddle boat, or any boat for that matter. Flotilla 9-11 in Cary, NC took that premise a couple ofsteps further and decided to embrace the core missions of RBS into one 10 minute sales call.At a meeting with Susan Moran, the Town of Cary Public Information Officer (PIO), Jim Ashley,FSO-PA-9-11 brought up the subject of Paddle boats are vessels in the eyes of the CoastGuard. The question posed to the PIO was, How about adding an extra measure of safety to thecanoes and kayaks at your town lake? The PIO jumped at the opportunity. She then related allthe side benefits available to the paddle boat renters, the renting staff, and the Town of Cary.Jiminy Crickets! Jim was reeling at the enthusiasm generated from his simple premise. As theproject turned out, we provided not only a VSC decal for each of 35 vessels (canoes, kayaks,sunfish, rowboats, pedal boats) but added a free branded message whistle for each, a PV displaybox at the rental station, and offered the ABS course to the three rental agents, all under the ageof 26 who require a boating education ID card in NC.Hey, thats better than a hat trick. Go for (a lot of) VEs and get some PA, PE and PVopportunitiesall at the same time. Well thats how its supposed to work, isnt it? Youll wind upwith many ways to spread our branded messages and maybe even recruit some Coast GuardAuxiliary advocates in the process.So, if you want to boost your annual VE numbers: find a paddle boat livery, pitch the Coast Guardseal of approval decal and give them a little whistle.This page came from DIR-BEditorial Contact: Jim AshleyBruce Johnson, DIR-BDirector for RBS Affairs
