Jackdale - you are correct and I was wrong about the US clearance procedure for foreign yachts, only the captain goes ashore (since I usually singlehand I get confused about who goes ashore or not).
Subsequently every person aboard the vessel has to clear immigration in person. See Pleasure Boat Reporting Requirements - CBP.gov or noonsite or 19 USC 1433 - Sec. 1433. Report of arrival of vessels, vehicles, and aircraft - U.S. Code - Title 19: Customs Duties - Part II - Report, Entry, and Unlading of Vessels and Vehicles - Id 19194197 - vLex for those details.
