Re: Return procedures?
You can leave from anywhere and show up in the Bahamas, just like the old days. From the US, depart anywhere and show up at Spanish Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. Zero traffic, nice setup. oh, a shallow draft helps, bottom is usually sand, just show your passport, probably no more than a bill of sale, and you're in. Might help to have registration somewhere. The Bahamas is interested almost exclusively about what you are hauling in country and can they get some duty on it.
Relax and steer!
