Default Who would you call?

There is a young guy with a seriously loose screw who comes down to Sanders beach, jumps off the dock and swims way off, sometimes across the boat channel, with boats going both ways.

He did it today and wound up across the channel swimming around the first green daymarker, sometimes clinging to it.

Called the marine patrol number...no answer.
Called the Sheriff's department, asked if they had any marine assets out today and explained what was going on
They transferred me to Pensacola police.
They transferred.me to the Coast Guard...no answer there, either.

Who the hell do you call in a situation like that?

I use to swim across a point down there by the front gate of NAS... If he does it frequently, don't worry about it....natural selection.

Don't call anyone. They'd probably end up shooting him. Let him swim.

Would you want to be the one to run over him with a boat?

Plenty of folks leaving the oar house or anxious to get to the pass leaving mahogany mill after going through all that no wake zone drop the hammer WOT right there. He’s gonna die.

When you say you called marine patrol you mean FWC? Call the illegal fish violations number and you’ll probably get someone.

Was it the number 7 day marker? We were offshore today and heard the Coast Guard asking someone if they see any one hanging onto the no. 7 day marker.
