Station (ANT) Muskegon
The acronym STANT describes the unique combination of a Search and Rescue Station (STA) with an Aids to Navigation Team (ANT). The crew of STANT Muskegon is responsible for maintaining aids to navigation from Frankfort, Michigan to Michigan City, Indiana, covering roughly 200 miles of Lake Michigan’s eastern shoreline. Within that area, they are responsible for all Search and Rescue and federal maritime law enforcement from Stony Lake to Mona Lake Michigan. The resources used for Search and Rescue include a thirty foot Utility Boat for open water rescue and sixteen foot Skiff for shallow water response. For servicing buoys, a forty-nine foot BUSL (Buoy Utility Stern Loading) is employed for large buoys and for smaller aids, a twenty-three foot TANB (Trailerable Aids to Navigation Boat), or the same sixteen foot Skiff may be used.
