Don't need no GPS; it is navigated by PBR.
Besides, from out in the Gulf, you can always smell which way Texas is...

Clearing In

I found clearing in after visiting the Bahama's this spring rather simple. we planned our return to West Palm Beach, entered a marina near the port and called customs. They asked us a few basic questions, got our customs sticker number, gave us a clearance number and told us we had to clear immigrations within 24 hours. The next morning we walked approximately 1/2 mile to the customs and immigration office in the port to clear in. To our suprise, no lines, and a very courteous and helpful customs/immigration officer. He cleared us in and helped us pre-register with immigration numbers so the next time we clear in we just have to call. I think the key is to plan your return to a port with a customs and immigration office nearby.

Hutch...DETAILS needed!! Where in WPB did you pull into and WHERE is immigration there? Sounds a whole lot more convenient than Ft. Pierce where we had an easy hne checkin but it was a cab ride to immigration.

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.

Hasn't anyone heard of C&BP's "Local Boaters Option"? Prior to going to the Bahamas this year, we took our passports and boat papers to the Customs office at the local airport and after filling out a couple of forms, we were issued a registration card. Upon arrival back to the States, we just called the nearest office and gave them the skipper's number from the registration card. Couldn't have been easier. BTW, the penality for not clearing is $5000.
