Coast Guard cracks down on illegal charter boats
In conjunction with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Coast Guard terminated the voyage of a 21-foot uninspected passenger vessel reecently near Longboat Pass. FWC observed the uninspected passenger vessel, which is only rated for six passengers, operating with seven passengers for hire, and boarded the vessel.
