“The way in which the service views its small-boat stations [is] illustrated by an old saying, ‘small boats, small problems.’ …The personnel policies of the U.S. Coast Guard and the way in which the small-boat rescue stations have traditionally been viewed and treated within the service have as much, if not more, to do with what happened than Bosley’s presumably faulty decisions.”
