They're there, omnipresent. First thing you see when you sail in to Cartegenia is a U.S. Navy Destroyer anchored in the middle of the harbour and A Coastie Launch Hanging on it's Davits. In the regan and then Bush senior years, they would swab your cabin top with q tip to look for weed rezin, in case you were smoking a doobee (sp?) in side. Possession. We had t_shirts made up that said "U.S. coast guard.. one seed is all they need to make you bleed. They were cutting peoples boat's up with chain saw's back then.
