WELCOME to the Coast Guard Channel Social Network

The COAST GUARD CHANNEL is celebrating its 7th year in service, while the COAST GUARD CHANNEL COMMUNITY is in its 6th year.

As the founders of the Channel and the Community we are proud to announce that we have reached over 9,000 Community members and that number continues to grow on a daily basis. The Community is an active and vibrant place that has become what it is because of you, the members. We provided an on-line gathering place and you all have turned it into something amazing.

Of course, there are costs involved to keep the Community running spam free, ad free and to support all the content that is being shared. That’s why, from time to time, we ask our members to help offset those costs of keeping the Community operating. And this is one of those times. We appreciate any donations or sponsorships (large or small) to keep the Coast Guard Channel and the Community alive.

If you would like to make a contribution of $25 or more, you’d become an official sponsor of the Coast Guard Channel/Community. Please visit our Sponsor Us page by clicking HERE and choose the level that you would like to Sponsor us at. This will take you through our store to complete your transaction.

If you want to give under $25, we recommend making your contribution straight to us by clicking this button:

If you’d like to do your transaction over the phone, please call us at 831-439-1514 .......... or by mail at:

And keep an eye out for our exciting announcement, as we are launching a new and improved Coast Guard Channel coming to your computer monitor very soon.

We thank you for your continued support!

"David, that story is a fair example of rotted detailing! Why give the tests in boot if you pull someone out of line and tell them what they want to be?"
