Open the hatch, drop a grenade, go home.

I misread the article at first; I thought it said "the cocaine was auctioned off at a San Diego port."  

 

:dopeslap:

 

Took some guts for the CG commando to open that hatch; left him pretty vulnerable.

That vessel would probably be quite noisy inside.  One could easily imagine the smugglers not hearing the order to stop, especially given that the Coastie wasn't even using a loud hailer.  In which case the "knock" on the door might have come as quite a surprise!  Kudos to the brave Coastie who made the leap and opened the hatch.  Although I doubt there was much risk of the smugglers coming out shooting.  They had to know that would be suicide.

Amazing!  Serving was a bit more routine when I served in the '50's.

Seems things have gotten a little different since I retired in 96.

Time to crank up the bushmaster.
