They were at one time labeled seas, and are a part of NOAA's Sea Grant program. They also fall under NOAA's Sea Watch.

Also a google search for "freshwater sea" brings up entry after entry for the Great Lakes.

...which led to http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...=Louisiana&z=8 for LA.

As for it being demeaning, I don't think that was the intention. I think the concept was to label the Gulf Coast as the next logical coast and not by importance. Seriously, who's going to say "my coast is better so it should be the 1st" outside of C-D??

With 12,522 hits for that search.

Which leads to Michigan's results of the same search with 240,000 hits. Or the NY/PA search which is the granddaddy of them all with over 544,000 hits.

Which really doesn't mean a darn thing. Somebody could name their business "Third Coast underwater basket weaving" and live in the middle of a desert.

I'd be afraid for the small white tour boat.

That is a very sharp angle for that ship to be going through, that definitely takes skill, I love canals though.

Umm...NOT!!!

I never knew a bay could be as large as a Cat 5 hurricane. That's news to me.
