Leaving the US

My wife and I are US citizens and had to clear through US customs when we flew from Houston to Jamaica. Then again we cleared customs before boarding a cruise ship in Seattle that had a stop in Canada. I can't find information about clearing out in my own boat to travel to the Bahamas (or anywhere else). I hope we still live in a free country and we can leave when we want to but that has not been our experience. I don't know why we where put through the ID formalities on commercial carriers. I've looked at US Customs sites and all they want to talk about is what hoops we must jump through when we want to reenter.
There has to be a thousand of you that know the answer to this.
