Coast Guard Plans To Downgrade Chatham Surf Station

Officials in Chatham are concerned about the Coast Guard’s plan to downgrade the station in town from a surf station to a heavy weather station, which means it will be unable to respond to emergency calls when the surf at the choppy Chatham coast is greater than 8 feet. 

Select Board Chair Shareen Davis says the town is urging neighboring towns and boaters to submit written comments opposing the Coast Guard’s plans.
