Not necessarily

a CG 2692b is required after a "Serious Marine Casualty"
vessel allision, Damage to the vessel over a certain dollar amount, failure of a critical system e.g. steering, gear box, main engine, death of a passenger or crew member, and an oil spill of a certain amount.

That being said if a Helicopter is required to get someone off or if the CG is called to assist. The Coast Guard investigator may request one be completed.

If you search CG 2692b you will see a bit more info.

So, about 200mi from PL next to last day in the AM Boots goes in to check on the guy.
Fvcker has a bottle of scotch and is up watching a god damn porno!
This is where things worked out OK.
Boots gets on the PA and says were stopping and fishing the remainder of the trip.
We proceed to come across a huge ripper school of BFT and Albacore and sat on 'em for almost 4 hrs wide open, plugged the holds.
We had our turkey dinner close to home and back in right on time the next day.

Insure your trip. Bob Dawson in Coronado can hook you up. How anyone can question the decision of the Captain in a situation like this is unacceptable. What if the life in the balance was you?

2 days of fishing, or a life saved. I'll vote for the life. The Captain made the right call, thank you.

I've been using Travel Guard Trip insurance from Bob Dawson (Ph 619-460-5615) for my fishing trips. Have received payment for two claims covered under a Trip Interruption
condition. One for 75% of the trip cost for a back issue that kept me from fishing 3/4 of the trip and the other was for 30% of the trip cost for a weather delay from last years May hurricane. In the case of this Excels early return anyone with a Travel Guard Trip Policy would have at least been able to get at least 25% of their trip cost returned.

Maybe someone has more knowledge about this than I do, but, doesn't the captain notify the Coast Guard of an incident such as this, and follow their protocol? Which I believe is to immediately head back and notify the Coast Guard if the situation deteriorates, requiring helicopter extraction?
You are Correct Steve!!!! and FYI Lori will have your Reel Wednesday

As you may have noticed, we haven't posted in a little while. Our most recent trip had to be cut short by a couple days due to a medical situation on-board.
This situation was deemed by the Captain and all on-board as very serious and the call was made with the health of our passenger in mind to head home as fast as possible to get proper medical attention.
We are very happy to report that the passenger with the dire medical situation made it back to port and to a hospit...al with no delay.
Providing an amazing fishing experience is what we strive to do. Providing the very best fishing opportunities, meals, customer service, informative seminars, cleanliness, efficiency, etc. are all things that we have control over. Of all of those mentioned, the one thing that we care about more than any is the safety of our passengers.
We want to thank all of those on-board the last trip for your understanding as well as everyone out there who follows us for your patience over the last few days.
We feel very blessed that our medical passenger made it home safely and look forward to our next trip.

This Facebook post is the bottom line. The captain's number one priority is the safety of all persons aboard, above everything else.

Heard from another passenger with Travel Guard that they wont pay out on this trip. And just when I was going to get the Ins on all my next trips.

A lot of Monday morning quarterbacking here. So be it. I'm glad everybody lived to fish another day.
