THE BEACH BOYS TRIBUTE

JUNE IS HERE!

CHECK IT OUT!

   Tybee Island may seem like just a little barrier island, but there is a lot going on here and whether you are a long time Tybee resident or a tourist, you might be amazed to know that there are a lot of people behind the scenes that work hard to make Tybee not only a beach vacation destination, but a safe place to be with your family and friends. One of Tybee’s most important organizations is the Marine Rescue Squadron (MRS). These volunteer men and women are on call 24/7 to rescue boaters and swimmers in distress, assist in search and rescue and when necessary, recovery.  

   1-A Tybee is our Squadron and this is the story of how it began:  

   During the Christmas holidays of 1958, six boys set out from the Tybee Fish Camp in two boats for Doc’s Drop, Little Tybee. Four of the boys were in one boat with all the camping equipment, food and water, while the other two boys set out in a skiff with a 2 ½ horse powered motor. The larger boat’s propeller became entangled in the marsh grass. The little boat passed them and said that they would meet them at the camp site. When the seaweed was cleared from the larger boat’s motor, they proceeded to the camp site and could not find the small boat. The next day they searched all day and returned to the Tybee Fish Camp to notify their parents. The Coast Guard was notified, but they refused to search for the missing boat. The Coast Guard said they could not get into the area with their 40-foot craft.

   During a 35-degree drizzling rain on Saturday night, the islands off Little Tybee were searched by David McCutchen, Jimmy Logan and Perry Solomon. On Sunday, about near Blue Hole, while gas tanks were being refilled, Jimmy Logan, Sr. yelled out for Little Jimmy. He got a response and saw a garment waving. With difficulty the boys were reached, and after being warmed up with warm drinks and blankets they headed for home.
