I understand that. Merely commenting that they don't seemed overly vigilant about it. And I certainly wouldn't recommend that anyone not report in. It does though, seem like one of those things where only the law-abiding are impacted and made to go out of their way, and at their own expense, to comply.

Anyone with an answer? I really just want to know.

I was about to tell you that when you go into international waters and return you are required to report back in. Then I remembered something that happened about two years ago.
I was crew on a foreign flagged yacht with three foriegn crew. We took the boat offshore to transfer ownership and even photographed the GPS to prove that we were not in US waters. We had three lawyers on board. When we came back we went straight to our slip without ever checking back in. In retrospect this seems wrong.
In another case I did a race last winter from SanDiego, down around the Rosarito Beach Bouy in Mexico and back. The customs guys did a bulk pre check in with all of the skippers the day before. Again we had several foriegn crew, and not an issue but the precheck was required or we sould have had to clear in after leaving US waters.
So...I'm not 100% sure what the rules are. I Canada, you definitely have to check in if you leave Canadian waters. I'm pretty sure US has the same rules.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Last weekend I went into the canadian san juans, came back to Roche Harbor on the NW corner of San Juan Island in Wa st. Their is a customs slip at the marina, with a bldg at the end one of the folks on the boat goes to check everyone in at. In Canada, similar, but their was a phone to use at the bldg. Called in, answered questions, got a ID number, taped to window as they asked....simple. When we got back, I just needed that number, along with pasports, easier than BC and photo ID etc, within 30 min We were checked in! I would assume as simple in other islands up there, along with ports in the area.

Florida sounds a bit weird if you have to go by car somewhere!

But, we all wanted to watch you do it...it'd give us something interesting to watch on TV and to talk about while you were out there.

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.

A friend's boat just returned from a three week trip to Mexico. On his return, he did't go to the Galveston Yacht Club to check in with customs, but proceeded directly to our marina. The next day a friendly female customs officer drove to the marina and spent most of her time BSing with my friend. No problems, no hassels, just friendly competent work.
