Dawg...the guy in latts/atts was USA. I just used the Brit as an example of what can happen in a place like Cuba where there is NO recourse to government or insurance.
Brits/Canucks etc. cannot be detained by the USA...but they MAY be refused a USA cruising permit when they try to enter the USA after visiting Cuba. US agents DO walk the docks at marina Hemmingway taking pictures and boat names. I have NOT however heard of anything bad happening to a foreign boat returning to the USA other than some fines, no permit refusals etc. ... but would suggest cigars be left with Raul.
If anyone has different info it would be useful to post it here.
US boats should not think they will "get away with it" if they enter from another country.
As I have said before...until and unless the law is changed it is not a good idea for US boats.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!
