My wife is a USCG 50 ton Capt. After the initial;
"Why is the Capt. not checking the boat in?"
She is afforded a great deal of respect by both male and female immigration officials. As a Hispanic female Capt. the shock and respect is even greater in Hispanic countries whe she is called Senora Captitaine!
