Please listen to Cam... we don't want them getting in the habit of getting Zarpes from US-originated boats.

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.

Sure - can do! I'll let you know what happens some time in November! :-)

Aside.. that CBP reply that may take 2-3 weeks, just came (fast eh?) - but they just told me about clearance INTO the USA - I guess they can't take the time to read a question LOL.

If you are expecting literacy or reading comprehension, try Switzerland. There's no one left in the US who is able to read and reply on point to a simple question. Just look at our choice of electoral candidates and how brilliantly they've answered the press.

Update, Arrived in Antigua

Hi Folks

We arrived in Antigua yesterday. Capt'n presented himself to customs with all our paperwork in a fold, the first thing they asked for was our clearance papers from prior port, and then questioned him on details... We presented it, not sure what would have happened if we didn't have it.

Hint - We picked up our 1300 at Morehead city (our departure port) - despite the fact that the web sites says customs works 24 hours there, they don't - so don't plan on trying to check out over a weekend.

OK - I'm off to Lime now - enough of this internet stuff.
