There have been several instances recently where Georgian Bay Boaters in distress have been unable to contact the Coast Guard via VHF Radio. The Coast Guard and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans are aware of this. Lets Go Boating has been campaigning for a VHF repeater Tower to be erected in the Town of Penetanguishene, Ontario. Mr. David Holding reports that he received a call from SAR in Trenton Ontario stating they had requested emergency funding. This was on July 28, 2011. While there appears to be some hope, we need to keep reminding Fisheries & Ocean Staff that this is very important.
