Saw that in the paper, and I have to say I'm glad. Now all the terrorist yachtsmen in Canada can sneak across the line with impunity.

Heard the same news too, which is good to know! We wouldn't want the wayward sailors from Illinois and chicago area come up this way and find a volley shot across their bow! LOL (Just Kidding)

Oh and yes, those darn pesky canadian terrorists yachties , last thing we need is to worry about being insulted in french. LOL

(sorry, having one hell of a cup of coffee this morning LOL)

On a serious note, I fully support the Coasties doing their live fire training, however they need one or two designated locations, where it won't jeapordize safety and other recreational boaters. To defend our country, we need to be ready for ANY type of aggressor.

heyyyyyyyyyyyyy I want a cannon like I saw in that posted message here! omg...that would be fun and LOUD!
