[QUOTE=Traitor Yankee;118063]Don’t talk about it on an Internet forum might be the first step to handling the USCG inquiry. Second would be to hire a lawyer[/QUOTE]
A Maritime Lawyer.
That said - DO NOT REPLY HERE - but ask yourself whether your company or the radio rig operator plans to take action against you. If no, consider yourself lucky. If yes, then you will need legal representation. Don’t talk to the press and for crimminy’s sake, don’t post on the internet. Keep a low profile and answer any questions directly to the point without elaboration.
Handle this right and your career may recover…
