Who Ya Gonna Call?

: A smany of you may recall, the U. S. Coast Guard Infoline
(a toll-free phone number formerly referred to as the Boating Safety Hotline)
was discontinued October 1, 2006 due to budget shortfalls.

At that time, the Coast Guard requested our partner organizations to remove
the 800 number from active websites and customer assistance phone services,
and to discontinue the use of the number in all printed material.

It has recently come to the Coast Guards attention that
the CG Infoline 800 number (800-368-5647) has been privately reactivated
and now leads to a secondary 800 number that is unrelated to boating safety
when dialed.
