Default Contacting Coast Guard via text?

I'm regularly a long ways offshore 100-150 out of Texas, way out of VHF or cell range. I do have a spot trace account that does well and Garmin inreach to text to people on shore. May get another sat phone, but it so seldom was used when I had the last two. In the event I needed some help right now, it would be nice to cut out the middleman and text the coast guard directly. Is there a number that the coast guard monitors? It is 2021, text is pretty widely adopted....

Funny...I was just wondering the same thing about reaching out via my Zoleo...
