International RIB cruise to St. Kilda and the Western Isles
Hell, USCG boarded my boat before I even got it off the trailer. Still in the parking lot (which likely wasn't really legal, but I didn't really mind.). Granted, it was more of a training exercise for a new guy, but still...

Coast Guard, or Coast Guard Auxiliary?

I've seen the Auxiliary check boats before launching while still on the trailer.

Crapgame - if your back's up to it, come with your boat and run a shake down cruise on Lake Powell this fall with us. From Bullfrog Marina to Wahweap Marina and back. Campout somewhere overnight. About 100 miles each way.

USCG. Station Monterey is a hundred yards from the parking lot where I launch. As I recall, weather wasn't great, and fishing was largely closed, so there wasn't a lot of boat traffic. I knew I was in compliance, and they looked like they really wanted to get the new guy up to speed, so I didn't complain. They were nice enough about it (actually, they always are around here.)
