Re: rammed:by the customs & border patrol

I have only been boarded once by a wildlife officer while duck hunting in a motor boat. Not nice, but professional in all other regards. I can't imagine being boarded while underway in a sailboat heeled over?? Why in the world would BOTH parties not prefer to drop sails, and safely board? A ship underway, ok....a small sailboat heeled over? WTF?
