I haven't had my boat out of the USA territory, but I've always assumed that to do so, I just take an Easterly heading and keep going, and nobody in the USA needs to say OK. Is that not true?
It may be true that you can leave the country by just sailing east off the coast into the Atlantic...but you should know that getting back in is likely to be very very difficult. The immigration and customs procedures are very strictly enforced since 2001. If you're going to be leaving the US...and ever want the chance of coming back, then you might want to follow the rules.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
