I know that it has come up a few times but I actually chatted with the coasties at Sandy Hook today; and this is the information that shared with me; my question to them was in regard to the number that I should leave on a float plan for families and friends if we were overdue (our float plan gives clear instruction on when and how we qualify as overdue and what action should be taken).
Sector Sandy Hook Emergency Number - 732–872-0326 – This is the number to program into your cell and sat phone. This is the number you call when you are directly involved in the emergency.
Sector Sandy Hook Communications – 732-872-3429 – This is the number that someone would call if you were late. Please note that this number is only manned during pseudo business hours.
Sector NY Communications - 718–354-4120 – This is the number that someone would call if you were late. This number is answer 24x7x365 (this is the number I am leaving on my float plans).
Please use this information as a guide and do your own homework to see if this information is applicable to your situation. But since I had seen this discussed previously without a resolution I thought I would share what I learned. But what do the legal eagles say; do your own due diligence don't trust some yahoo on the internet. At least its a starting point.
