BVI Boats Seized by US Customs

The Puerto Rican boat has been released, but the USVI boat remains held hostage to a typically corrupt island system. And it''s captain Niddrie. Last year, just for fun, the BVI seized one of the Bryan kids'' boats and held the teenager. Thing is, you can''t figure out HOW to get a fishing license in the BVI, much less what the actual customs fees are when clearing in. Seems to vary widely. I''ve got dozens of BVI stamps in my passport, none of which cost the same amount. They''re targeting U.S. citizens, again, in the hopes that the major sportfishing fleet will relocate to the BVI.
