what kind of airplane does the coast guard use? I saw a very low flying above wing, 4 engine prop plane swinging around south of the hook early this AM.

We are used to seeing the bright orange Multi Mission Cutter MH65c helicopters down at IBSP. They also use 2 different types of prop aircraft. Their Long Range Search is the familiar c-130 designated H/J. I have seen those being used by the forestry service out west. I have seen around here the Guard's Medium Range Search aircraft, the CN 235-300.

I hope this guy had a VHS. To go out front without one is a death wish plain and simple.

Update:
POINT PLEASANT BEACH ? Coast Guard officials continue to search for a missing kayaker, who has been identified as a prominent developer from Fort Myers, Fla., who recently has been plagued by lawsuits.

Frank D'Alessandro, 52, went missing Wednesday. The Coast Guard and the New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau began their search for him off of Point Pleasant Beach after a family member called authorities because he failed to meet her for a scheduled lunch date.

D'Alessandro is a partner in the commercial real estate development firm of Gates, D'Alessandro and Woodyard LLC of Fort Myers, Fla.

In April 2003, D'Alessandro and First Home Builders president Pat Logue teamed up to present the real estate market in the Fort Myers area with a plan to sell leased-up houses to investors.

The plan went well at first but collapsed in 2006 as rental rates and prices plummeted. Numerous lawsuits have been filed, but D'Alessandro and his attorneys have denied any wrongdoing.

D'Alessandro was in Point Pleasant to visit his mother who just underwent surgery, according to police. He had rented an oceanfront home in Point Pleasant Beach for a two-week stay.

On Wednesday, the Coast Guard received the missing report about D'Alessandro at 1:30 p.m. and a helicopter was on the scene three minutes later, according to Petty Officer Nyx Cangemi.

Soon after, the crew discovered an overturned orange kayak about nine miles off shore, he said, adding that authorities have not confirmed that the kayak belonged to the missing boater.

On Wednesday night, the Air National Guard also searched for about two hours, said Cangemi.

The search continued today without any sign of D'Alessandro.

Got a feeling somebody is going to find his body this weekend in the surf!

Unless it's a scam and he is avoiding prosecution.

Still not found, confirmed it was his kayak they found along with half a paddle and life jacket.Article here
Just hope it all wasn't just a ruse with him on his way to the Canary Islands.

After reading the "rest of the story", as Paul Harvey likes to say, I'm also skeptical. Then again, I have dealt with people lying to save their butts when the truth would work so much better for 25 years, that I am a total cynic... 9 miles off the beach? Sounds like a really strong rip current...
