This may have been mentioned before, but I got a notice from the Coast Guard regarding free “If Found” stickers for kayaks and canoes. Apparently them finding owner-less craft in the water is a thing. I ordered my five today. This was the notice:
“I would like everyone to ID their paddle craft. I ask that you get an If Found-Contact sticker provided by the Coast Guard to help identify your craft should it end up in the water without you. This will save the Coast Guard and others from having to launch a search for you. Send your name, mailing address and the amount of stickers you want to Iffoundsticker@d13cgaux.net. These are provided at no charge. Please let me know where you saw the post. I also have a handy guide to safer paddling for you.”
Sounds like a good idea.
